Letter to the Fordham Community from USG

Santiago Vidal and Ava Coogan May 12, 2023
It is with great pleasure that we address you in our last days as Fordham University United Student Government’s (USG) Executive Administration of 2022-23. When we took office, we knew our job this year was going to require higher levels of dedication and responsibility. We started the year with a new university president, uncertainty on the national political stage, financial uphills at the university level and a lack of trust and transparency with the student body. However, we are glad to report that the state of the university student body is better than ever.
