Letter From The President

Morgan Franklin

Dear BSA Family,


This week the BSA is not hosting or co-sponsoring any events, but there is a lot going on around campus! This is the last week to fill out the Mentor & Mentee Applications, if you have not already done so, I am encouraging all of you to do so now, so we can continue on this tradition. We have some very exciting events currently in planning for Parents Weekend and Homecoming which are quickly approaching, be on the lookout for the dates & times so that you, your family, and friends can come out and have a great time!


If you are a First-Year Chemistry student and are interested in picking up old chemistry tests please e-mail Micaela.J.Green@Vanderbilt.edu or stop by the BCC this tuesday from 7:00pm - 8:00pm.


Lastly, I want to say thank you to everyone that nominated me to represent BSA for Outstanding Senior! I have made it to the Top 20 and am extremely thankful and excited for being recognized, and given the opportunity to represent the BSA and the Class of 2014!


I hope you all have a great week! Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions, concerns, or recommendations for the BSA.


Sincerely!

Morgan Franklin
