Blake Porter

Hello Ichabods! My name is Blake Porter ,and I have the pleasure of serving as your student body president for the coming school year.

To the new students, I congratulate you on becoming Ichabods. To the returning students, I welcome you back to Washburn for what I am sure will be a very enjoyable year.

The purpose of this column is to keep students up-to-date with the happenings of the Washburn Student Government Association.

One exciting piece of news is that WSGA has made online access to the New York Times free and available to all Washburn students and faculty.

Another piece of exciting news is that applications are now available for freshman senate elections. You can pick up an application in our office located in the lower level of the Memorial Union, or you can find it on our website

We also have open senate applications, which are available to both freshman and upperclassmen. If you are looking to get involved and would like to make a difference on your campus, then this would be a great way to do just that.

I hope you all are looking forward to a great year and please let me, or any of the other members of WSGA, know if there is any way that we can help make your college experience unforgettable! Go Bods!
