Hey Gamecocks! My name is Jesslan Sharp, and I am so honored and humbled to serve as your SGA President for the 2016-2017 school year. I am a senior from the small town of Sylvania, Alabama, and I am studying Political Science with a focus in International Relations and Economics. I began working in the SGA during my freshman year, and I can honestly say it has made my experience here as a student worthwhile. Being involved has helped me discover more of who I am, given me opportunities to expand my boundaries, and created a passion for student success that I did not have previously. I want to encourage you to get involved in something you are passionate about here on campus and make the most of your time here at the Friendliest Campus in the South. My time here has been more rewarding than I could have ever imagined, and I truly hope you have the same experience. If you ever have any questions or concerns, my door is always open! Stay Cocky!
