Thank you to the SPH students who joined the GSGA’s zoom social last Friday! We shared stories, laughs and answered questions students had. Stay tuned for the next zoom social! Also, we are still in search of student nominees to serve as Senators and representatives on the Faculty Student Council (FSC), Faculty and Student Disciplinary Committee (FSDC) and Committees for the 2020-2021 academic year. If you are interested, please send us an email to Carly.Luk47@sphmail.cuny.eduClick here to view more about the positions. We are also going to have our voting platform available beginning May 11, 2020 to May 22, 2020. Keep an eye out for the voting link!

Lastly, if you are in need of food, please visit the list of Food Resources During COVID-19 that we created for you. There is also an essential workers’ support group for SPH students on Thursdays from 12pm-1pm via Webex.
