SJC Brooklyn Student Government Association President Eva Jefferson-Page said she is more than ready to return to the Clinton Hill campus for the spring semester.
“I’m looking forward to leaving my legacy,” said Jefferson-Page, a senior child study major. “I have been thinking about what that looks like, and I’m hoping that by the time the semester ends, I will have left an indelible impact on the student body.”
Jefferson-Page is excited to hit the ground running for the last semester of her undergraduate career and said she’s especially ready to devote her energy to organizing SGA’s biggest event of the spring semester: the student organization fair in March.
In addition to her SGA duties, Jefferson-Page will be busy student teaching at P.S.17K in Williamsburg, volunteering at the food pantry at Second St. Paul Church of Christ in East New York, finishing her last few classes, and working hard to encourage her peers to get involved on campus.
“My favorite part about returning to campus is the love,” Jefferson-Page said. “I miss being around my SJC family.”
SGA is hardly the only club ready to kick off the new semester. Many student organizations — the Science Club and Be the Match among them — are also planning their first meetings. And the Student Leadership Experience (SLE) has a slew of virtual events planned helping students identify bias and understand how it affects their daily lives, learn about earning good credit and investing, and understand the best ways students can present themselves to employers and internship opportunities.
“Speaking of involvement, I would like to tell my fellow seniors to start getting involved,” Jefferson-Page said. “This is our last semester at the College, and the best way to make the most of it is to get active in the schools community. Good luck Class of 2022!”
