UPB is Hiring!

I joined the University Program Board on a whim, after hearing about
it through the leadership development program Make Your Mark on
Madison. The spring semester of my freshman year, I applied and was
accepted for the executive board, not knowing what I was getting
myself into. As it turns out, it has been the hands down best decision
I have made in my JMU career. That was three years ago.

As a second-semester senior now, I have been looking back and
reflecting on my experience at JMU, while seizing the opportunities
that I have left before I graduate in May. It has been almost a year
since I was selected as the 2011-2012 University Board President. How
I got here…at this point, I’m not even sure. Last time I checked, I
was a freshman in Eagle Hall. But it’s time to select the next group
of leaders, and that is YOU. Some words of advice:

“Today is a most unusual day because we have never lived it before; we
will never live it again; it is the only day we have” – William Arthur

Now is the time to get involved! Don’t take for granted the little
time that you left here. Last night, the semi-annual Student Org Night
took place in the Festival ballroom, with representation from
hundereds of student organizations eager to make a difference on the
JMU campus and in your college experience. If you didn’t make it over
to the Festival ballroom yesterday, it’s not too late! Take the time
to reach out to a club that represents something you’re truly
passionate in, or even a club that you don’t know much about.

If you are interested in joining the University Program Board, I know
we would love to have you. Applications are out now and are available
on our website upb.jmu.edu. It’s never too late, or too early, to
create the college experience that you want and make a difference on
this campus.

~Emily Grochowski, President
