To All students at the Medical University of South Carolina,
On behalf of the Student Government Association, Office of Student Programs and Diversity, and Division of Education and Student Life, I would like to send a very warm welcome to all of you! You have made a wonderful decision in choosing to attend MUSC. As a student at MUSC, you will find an abundance of support and services across campus to help you succeed in every aspect of your education.
Outside of your education, the Student Government Association (SGA) plans many social and cultural events, as well as service opportunities, for students in all six colleges to participate in to complement your academic experience. The most important advice that I received the week prior to starting medical school was from a former MUSC professor; he said that while it is important to sustain your hunger for learning and passion to help others, it is imperative to make time for yourself in order to create a healthy balance between school and personal life. We have all chosen to enter demanding careers, and the majority of your time here at MUSC will be spent studying and training to be successful healthcare professionals. SGA provides a variety of programming and events throughout the school year for you to take advantage of whenever you need a break from your studies and want meet other MUSC students.
Not only have you chosen to attend a fantastic university, you have also chosen to live in one of the best cities in the world. Travel+Leisure Magazine ranked Charleston as the #2 city in the world and the #1 city in the United States and Canada for 2015. As an MUSC student, you can receive a variety of discounts across town; please visit our website (www.musc.edu/sga) for more information. The beaches are also a great place to study or relax!
Please let me know if I can be of any assistance throughout your journey at MUSC. I look forward to meeting all of you soon, and hopefully I will see you at our first event of the year, the MUSC Back to School Party on Friday, August 28. Then, on Wednesday, September 9, please stop by the Student Activities & Volunteer Fair to find out about how to get involved with student organizations on campus, services available to students, and volunteer opportunities.
Best wishes for a great school year!Regina K. BrownPresident, Student Government AssociationMedical University of South Carolina
