Everywhere around campus there are signs encouraging students to vote for the SBAs. Elections are around the corner, and students have the opportunity to be a part of something great here at Snow College.
Becoming a Student Body Advocate is a great way to get involved in all the fun activities that Snow College has to offer. In the Student Body Advocate election packet it states, “The role of an SBA is to connect with student issues, program exciting activities that will appeal to a wide variety of students and help create an atmosphere where diversity is appreciated, not just accepted.”
At an interest meeting, the current Student Body Advocates shared their experiences about being SBAs. They encouraged all in attendance to become Student Body Advocates and taught all about the good times SBAs get to have.
Arnold Tatenda Nyatanga from sunshine city Harare, Zimbabwe, a Student Body Advocate for 2013-2014 talks about being an SBA, “This has been a great experience for me. I have grown as a person and leader. I have learnt many things from staying on budget, planning big events and leading by exemplary behavior at all times. I love being part of student body advocates because I have met some really amazing people on and off the team, and I have had the best advisors who give advice and are a support system.”
When asked, “Have you enjoyed being an SBA and would you do it again?”, Brooke Bradley, a legislative/service Student Body Advocate said, “I have truly LOVED being an SBA. I wouldn’t give up this experience for the world (or even a handsome guy)! It has been the most triumphant year of my life. I have met so many people and friends, had so many experiences I wouldn’t have had otherwise, learned so many skills, and have just had the time of my life! It’s a great day to be a badger!”
Some students at Snow College are interested in becoming a part of the Student Body Advocate program. Haylie Miller, a student who attended one of the SBA interest meetings, commented on why she wants to become an SBA. She said, “The programs here are always so fun; I’d love to be a part of their
Brooke Bradley also explains why she wanted to be a Student Body Advocate, “Becoming involved in about everything at Snow College and in such a huge way is a dream come true! I love being able to serve Snow College’s student body in this way. I also really wanted to be part of a team that had the same goals and dreams that I did. Being part of such an amazing team is definitely one of my favorite parts. Together we can do anything.”
Becoming an SBA here at Snow College is a great opportunity for all who are interested. Arnold Tatenda Nyatanga gives advice with a quote by Harold S. Geneen, “Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.” Arnold comments, “That quote speaks volumes to anyone who wants to be a leader or inspire others. I recommend being an SBA to anyone who is ready to challenge themselves, to learn a lot about themselves and others, and someone who is ready and eager to serve the students of Snow College.”
If you aren’t running this year, then becoming an SBA should be considered for the future. The elections are coming up and it would be great to see everyone get involved, so go vote for the next Student Body Advocates.
