Hey Otters, OSU CEO, Lindsay Williams here, welcoming you to a great new year at CSUMB! I am a senior and I am an ISSM major combining music and business. Too good to be true for my job you may ask? It definitely is!
2011-2012 will be my second year on board of the Otter Student Union. Last year I held the position of Senior Vice President and spent countless hours preparing myself for this position. This year, I am pleased to announce we have a full board with many new and returning students, ensuring an exciting blend of fresh ideas and precedence that will allow us to serve, you, the students, better. This year we will be expanding the use of the Black Box Cabaret as well as making renovations to the building to make your experiences there, more enjoyable. We are also going to be spending valuable time to look into the feasibility of building our own student union. I'm ecstatic to take the student lead on this endeavor and will make sure to keep everyone updated about that process. In addition to these stepping stones, I want to say I'm very pleased about our growth as we are expanding our programming committee as well as developing a street team. Student input and awareness are very important to me. One of my goals for the year is to reach a greater number of students by creating programming that appeals to our diverse campus.
OSU keeps me busy, but I'm thankful we live in a beautiful area that allows me to spend my spare time in many ways. I love reading on the beach in Carmel, as well as travelling up to Berkeley and San Francisco. In the mornings, if I'm on my phone, I'm probably catching the morning edition of The Huffington Post.
To me the ethic of stewardship is very important and resonates deep in my decisions and actions. As such, I keep in mind that the students come first, and do my best to make sure you are happy. If you have any comments, concerns or questions, please email me and I will be more than happy to get back to you.
