As a new year starts for Claflin University's student population, one student has a master plan to bring a new experience to the campus.
Student Government Association President Andy L. Michel wants to make the campus a more enjoyable, organized and safer environment.
"My plan is to increase the SGA budget by opening a student-run 'snack shack,’ and I also plan to get the café to a point where students can look forward to eating there," Michel said.
But food isn't the only thing on his task list. Michel plans on making things more organized and more productive around the school.
"I also plan on supporting and holding accountable the organizations on campus by using our newly implemented Presidential Union."
Michel also wants to make the student population feel safer.
"I plan to support public safety by creating a more effective SNAP program," Michel said.
Michel does have a concern about being SGA president.
"My only fear is failing, but with the team I have, that's impossible," he says.
"I want everyone to know that our motto is 'Building A Strong Student Union,’ and the only way we can be effective is if we all participate and support each other," he said.
