Vice President of Student Activities 

Major: Nursing
Hometown: Athens, AL  

Hello Gamecocks, my name is Tierra Thatch, a native from Athens, Al. I am heavily involved on campus from SGA, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, NAACP, Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity, and much more! I am super excited to be working in this SGA position for a second term! I want to be a voice for all of you and help make events as inclusive as possible, however, I will need help from all of you! I would love for you all to be able to contact me if you ever have an idea for events. Event planning is one of my most favorite things to do. I get to see students having fun, creating memories, and enjoying college life! I am excited to make events bigger, better, and bolder for all of you this year!

           On the other hand, I chose JSU not only because of its AMAZING Nursing Program, but because I saw so many positive outcomes through people who have graduated from this institution. Unfortunately, I did not sign up for the “normal” things that students get a chance to do before they are enrolled in college like going to Accepted Students Day, touring the campus, or even a Preview Day. I took a leap of faith and once i moved in, I knew that this is where God wanted me to be placed. I encourage you all, be involved with JSU. Whether that be joining an organization, helping the community, or even spreading that Gamecock pride at sporting events! Your college experience is what you make it! Once again, let's have a great year Gamecocks & Blow Southerners!

Advice for Students Who Want to Get Involved

Show up to events that interest you and ask questions! There is no such thing as a bad question if it means you're learning!

Favorite Place on Campus

The new water fountain! At nighttime, it lights up red and just sitting there listening to the water flow and watching the waves of the water is absolutely peaceful!

Favorite Student Event

Gamecock Gala, by far!!! I got to see over 200 students dressed up to eat food, have fun and dance, and participate in the “Walk it Down” challenge!
