Welcome From the SGA President


Dear Patriots,

Greetings! On behalf of the Student Government Association, it gives me great pleasure to welcome both new and returning students to Francis Marion University.

We are excited about the 2015-2016 academic year, and the wonderful opportunities that await each of you; opportunities that will enhance your academic and social development. We are thrilled to know that you have decided to make Francis Marion your home; and we look forward to helping you grow, succeed and reach your true potential. We encourage you to take advantage of all the resources that the University has to offer.

The University has all the resources you will need to better yourself as a person and to enrich your college experience. Some of these resources are the Writing Center and the All Campus Tutoring Center. These centers are available to all students and are designed to help you develop good study techniques, with enrichment in all subjects.

Francis Marion University also has the sixth largest academic library in the state with 385,000 volumes and provides access to a variety of electronic databases. It also has study rooms for individual and group study sessions.

Make sure you get involved with campus life. We have more than 40 organizations on campus as you utilize what the university has to offer. This will help enhance your college experience tremendously and will foster great memories that will last forever. Please know that everyone here is going to assist you in any way possible as you begin your journey at Francis Marion. Administrators, teachers, advisors, peers and most importantly, the Student Government Association, are all here for you. Feel free to stop by our office located in the University Center in Room 215, or you may visit our website at www.fmarion.edu/students/student_government.

We look forward to a great and productive year! We are one family. We are PATRIOTS!
