Fireside Chat

President LaForge chats with Student Government Association President Mikel Sykes in Java City, the newly-renovated coffeehouse on campus.

The two discuss the importance of a student’s involvement and leadership on campus. It not only provides outlets and opportunities to strengthen skills and teamwork but offers a sense of community and to reinforce lessons learned in the classroom.

Delta State offers a wide variety of ways to get involved on campus, from student organizations to sponsored events and athletic games. Sykes, a native of Winona and a social science education major, serves as a student representative on the president’s cabinet each week. He tell the audience how a new student can get more involved on campus by joining campus organizations, playing intramural sports, living on campus, participating in Greek life, and attending sporting events.

Sykes talks about big events coming up this fall, like Union Program Council events (movies, music, etc.), Pig Pickin’, Homecoming, and more.

Getting involved is a great way to make friends and really make the most of your college experience. The networks you develop at Delta State can last a lifetime.
