Welcome from the President

Welcome Hornet Nation!

My name is Elijah Williams, and I am the Student Body President for Emporia State University. The number one goal for the Associated Student Government (ASG) is to make the students at our institution feel as comfortable as possible. If you have any questions related to our organization or student life feel free to contact me through email or visit my office at the Center for Student Involvement in the Memorial Union.

Emporia State University has over 130 Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) on campus. There is an organization for nearly every interest. If not, you can create your own organization, so feel free to join as many clubs as you like to meet others, engage in service, and build your résumé.

Be sure to take full advantage of the services that ESU offers. For instance, if you happen to lock your keys in your car, you can call Police and Safety to have an officer unlock your vehicle for free. Other services that the Associated Student Government offers are free legal counseling to all students, along with the Collegiate Readership Program which gives all students free editions of USA Today.

Most importantly, enjoy your time at ESU. There are many activities and events that ESU hosts throughout the year. The most popular event is the Block Party on Commercial Street, which will take place August 22nd at 6:00 PM. Also, support all Hornets in their competitive activities, cheering from the sidelines at an athletic event to showing support to the Debate team, all Hornets appreciate the encouragement!

It’s a great day to be a Hornet!

Elijah Williams
