To the Editor,

I want to take this time to thank the Fairfield University Student Community for all the love and support you have provided me with over my college career. Serving as FUSA President for the past two years has been a life changing experience and something that I will remember forever.

As FUSA President, I have learned a wide range of skills and lessons such as responsibility, hard work and goal setting. The lesson I have the greatest appreciation for however, is that a leader’s success depends on the support they have from those they serve with. Fortunately, I have been blessed to serve on an amazing FUSA Team, especially who I work closest with on the Executive Cabinet. I would like to thank and recognize David Axelrod ‘10, Rachel Feyre ’10, Frank Fioretti ‘10, Alison MacNeill ’10, Erin Mackey ’10, Eddie Muniz ’11, Christine Ruane ’10, Nicole Sweeney ’10 and Vice President Lauren Johnson ’11 for the support you have given to me, to one another and to the student body over the past year.

I believe our greatest accomplishment together has been making structural changes to FUSA so that it is more efficient in serving the student body. Due to our work, FUSA has structures in place to both attract and reach out to students to get involved, develop leadership skills of all officials and to make a difference on campus. This has been done through establishing roles and responsibilities for FUSA Officials, defining a training and community building program and expanding opportunities for students to have meaningful roles in areas such as campus programming, student advocacy and club advisement. These structural changes will enable FUSA to build upon our work for years to come.

In looking back at my time as FUSA President, I can say with fullest sincerity that although, having a prestigious title is nice, it is the skills I have learned, the people I have worked with, and the differences I have been apart of bringing about that make this position so special to me. It has truly been an honor to serve the Fairfield University Student Body and I thank you all for this opportunity. Good luck in all your future endeavors and may God bless you.

Sincerely,

Jeffrey Seiser

FUSA President
