From the Desk of the President.
I have always wanted to write that. Thanks Woodrow for another dream come true.
Dedicated staff and fellow students. As President of Student Government Association, it is my great pleasure to welcome
you to our community. I would also like to thank all of you who have given me this opportunity. I would also like to extend
my congratulations to the students who graduated this past Friday, and to all of our new students. Woodrow Wilson is a fine
institution, and you should be very proud to be able to say that you are a part of it.
I want you to think about your education up to this very moment, from finger painting and handwriting, to calculus and
physics. Woodrow Wilson is about to bring you to an entirely new level of learning. What you learned in high school was good
for high school, but this is college, and you have a lot of learning to do. Over the course of the next weeks, months, or
year you will learn what you need to in order to be a leader in our complicated world.
College is an amazing experience because you and you alone, decide what you get out of it. President John F. Kennedy once
said, "And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
Woodrow Wilson is going to do many things for all of you. But, how do you make the most of what Woodrow Wilson is offering
you? The way to do this is to GET INVOLVED! Join one -two- three or more of the committees that Woodrow Wilson has to offer.
Committees that do everything from helping clean up campus to plan dances for the students.
When I first came here I was a bit shy which many of you may be when you first come to a new place that you are unfamiliar
with. I eventually opened up and I wasn't afraid anymore to talk to people and get involved. I joined Peer Mediation Counseling,
Activities Committee, Dorm Committee, and I got involved in being an ambassador. And I'm just like anybody else, so if I can
do it, you can definitely do it. And so my fellow students ask not what Woodrow Wilson can do for you, ask what you can do
for Woodrow Wilson! That is how you will get the most out of your time at Woodrow Wilson.
Never forget that you are not alone here, not by a long shot. The faculty, staff, and student leaders of this campus are
always available to help you. You hopefully got to experience this on Monday when one of the ambassadors helped you move in.
If you need help, don't be afraid to ask. Look around over the next few days, there will be students with red name tags that
say WWRC Ambassador. If you need help with anything, ask one of us. It is my promise to you that we are here to help you.
Hopefully we'll help you with whatever you need, and you might want to come back and help others yourself. I know from experience
what you are thinking right now... how long is this email going to be and how much longer am I going to go on? I know you
have a lot of stuff to do. You just got to college and you have the rest of your life ahead of you, new friendships to form,
relationships to cherish, and a campus to explore. But before I end this email, let me give you some advice, some advice that
I could have used when I first came to Woodrow Wilson. Don't be afraid to be yourself, try to be open-minded, be aware, be
active, be studious, have a great time and most importantly, don't forget to call your parents and loved ones often, and only
occasionally asking for money.
Thank you and welcome to Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center!
Angela Bean (SGA President)
