My name is Stephen Washington and I am the current Student Government President of our university. I am exhilarated to be one of the many people to introduce you to our beautiful campus, and even more excited for you to step into a new chapter of your life during these historic times. Our policy book, the Swataney Student Handbook, is the fabric of what makes us SHIP Students; in its pages are the “how to’s” to become a true member of our family and I hope you get a chance to read it.
From understanding housing policies to academic guidelines, this guide will help open the doors for the many opportunities that await you. While many may see this handbook solely as a set of rules, I view the Swataney as a resource to help understand my rights as a student. I hope you view it the same. In its policies are our student rights and allows us to let our voice be heard.
In short, take the time to understand your rights as a student, and let it be one of the many steps you take to become a true SU Raider!
