Welcome back to YSU in the Spring semester! Surely everybody has already had a good return to classes, and the Student Government Association would like to start off the semester meeting with students! So come up tomorrow, Wednesday, January 19 to Christman Dining Hall by Lyden and Cafaro House between 5pm and 8pm for the first Meet the Reps Night of the semester!
The YSU Student Government Association is proud to announce the next speaker for its semi-annual “Last Lecture” series.
“Words to Live By”: A Last Lecture Series features a different university professor or administrator each time and asks them to answer the following hypothetical question: “If you could give one final lecture, what would you tell your students?”
The Student Government Association is pleased to have our Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Ikram Khawaja, speaking at our second installment of the series.
The event will be Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 3:30pm in the James Gallery, on the second floor of Kilcawley Center and is free and open to the public.
Attention Youngstown State University!

On April 12, 2010, YSU’s Student Government Association voted to adopt a resolution in support of Ohio Issue 1, which will be appearing on the May 4 ballot. To encourage support for Issue 1, SGA would like to invite students to show their support on Facebook by marking their plan to “attend” this event as a vote in favor of Issue 1.
For those who aren’t familiar with the Third Frontier project, we’re providing several links with more information.
If you aren’t sure where your polling location is for the election, you can look it up on the Ohio Secretary of State’s website: http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/elections/voterInformation/procedures.aspx
The YSU Student Government Association is proud to announce that, beginning this semester, it will sponsor a semi-annual “Last Lecture” series.
“Words to Live By”: A Last Lecture Series will feature a different university professor or administrator each time and ask them to answer the following hypothetical question: “If you could give one final lecture, what would you tell your students?”
The Student Government Association is pleased to have YSU’s incoming President, Dr. Cynthia Anderson, as the inaugural speaker.
If this sounds familiar, you are probably thinking of the late Dr. Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University whose “last lecture” gained fame because when he presented the lecture he was dying of cancer.
While Dr. Pausch’s lecture made the concept famous, in reality the practice of a professor giving a hypothetical “last lecture” is a long standing academic practice at universities in both the United States and around the world.
The event is April 13, 2010 at 3pm in the Ohio Room, Kilcawley Center and is free and open to the public.
