One group that has received the majority of my spare time is the Fisher Graduate Student Association (FGSA). This group is the de facto student council and is responsible for implementing change based on student feedback and suggestions. In order to do this, we have the responsibility to delegate funds to different student groups so they are able to make the largest contributions to the Fisher community. Therefore, we are also responsible for approving new student organizations that seek funds.
This quarter we received a request from a group of students seeking to start a Fisher Racquet Sports group. After listening to the group’s formal proposal, we determined that it would be in the best interest of Fisher College to approve this organization. Some of the sports that will be included in the racquet sports group include ping pong, badminton, cricket, tennis, squash, racquetball, and several others. Congrats to all the individuals who worked so hard to get the group approved.
On a side note, FGSA is still seeking individuals for the next group of social chairs. If you have an interest in actively planning next year’s social events, please email me.
