Letter from Student Body President

Greetings Leathernecks!

My name is Fiifi Godwyll, I am honored to serve as President of the Student Government Association. I believe my main purpose as a leader is to add as much value as I can to the lives of every WIU student on and off campus!

This is the start of a new year, WIU has been successful in devising ways to combat COVID-19. Due to last year's consistent efforts we are starting to return to a sense of normalcy.

Yet, we have all felt the consequences of the pandemic. If any of you are still experiencing negative emotions, thoughts, or circumstances please remember that we are here for you. WIU has abundant free resources at Counseling Services for anyone hoping to find relief from heavy circumstances or something as simple as disliking homework.

We haved turned a corner and are starting to see the more traditional college experience we all expected. As this new year continues, I am looking forward to meeting each of you!

If you believe you may have COVID-19, we still have testing services available to students in the SOC, located in the basement of the Union. It is important to keep your friends, family, peers, and fellow Leathernecks safe. Do your part, and encourage others to do the same. #TakingWsAtWIU

Have a great year and GO ‘NECKS!
