This week I am going to do a little promotion for the Undergraduate Student Government (USG). As vice president of the organization, I am also the chair of the communications & recruitment committee.
USG currently has about 20 open positions and is seeking undergraduate students who are dedicated to improving student life, have the desire to be a student advocate and learn about university and governmental issues, and who have potential to become a great leader for the school.
For those not familiar with the organization, USG is the official student voice representing the undergraduate student body. USG serves as the connection between the student body and university administration.
Weekly USG membership time requirements include: attend three office hours; partake in an hour-long committee meeting; and attend the Thursday general meeting from 5 to 7 p.m.
To apply, visit http://www.uic-usg.org/about-usg/documents/ and open “Membership Application 2013.” Fill out the application and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, come to our office in Student Center East, Suite 397 (student office area, above the Wellness Center), on from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday to pick up a paper application and meet current members of USG. You will also receive a free ROCKSTAR Energy Drink!
All applications are due by March 1, 2013. Select applicants will be interviewed during the week of March 4. All applicants will be notified of USG’s decision by March 12. Those invited to become members will be sworn in at the March 14 USG general assembly meeting at 5 p.m. Membership is valid until May 2014.
Hope to see some of my readers joining USG!
