#Done

#Soooooverthisjob. #Tired Somehow got roped into doing this column so I have to get this out of the way. More concerned about job hunts and finishing a thesis at the moment, but someone has to do this. #obligations #dontwannabutgotta

My fellow Bobcats, it’s been an honor serving as your ASMSU Student Body President. As I reflect on this past year, the experience has been simply incredible. I have been continually supported by a passionate and dedicated band of student leaders, especially my girlfriends who I’ve spent many a crazy night out with. #nowherewithoutmygirls #teammadduck #isitsummeryet

During my term I focused on five priorities — #safety, #studentlife, #academics, #athletics and #sustainability through various events, initiatives, programs and services. Rather than list everything we’ve accomplished — and trust me, I could go on for awhile — I will give three of the ASMSU’s greatest accomplishments this past year. #lookingback #nostalgia #teartomyeye

First off, we’ve successfully collaborated with the university administration to successfully make the word “leadership” used more often in university communications than the words “the” and “it.” The goal, of course, was making sure students would never miss or forget the word. #makingthingshappen #engagedleadership #resumepimping

Second, we’ve managed to set up a lot of task forces and programs, but a lot of their names and functions I don’t remember right now. #oops Talk to the people over in the PR department, it’s their job to have this information, not mine. #notmyprob At least, not after the new student body president takes office. #congratsnewprez They can sort out all the details, it’s good leadership skill building anyways. #trialbyfire

Was there a third? Screw it, I’m sure those Excrement editors will stick something in here for me. At least, I really hope they do. #fixitguys But to those graduating with me, may commencement be the first of many steps on your professional journey to your career and further your academic goals. I will miss you all and hope that MSU will continue as a source of major opportunity. #alumni #cats4life #miss-u-msu

As always, try remain active and don’t hesitate to appeal your concerns to your student body representatives. They are, and always will be, here to make the university a better environment for all. I’m just not a part of it anymore, so don’t voice those concerns to me. #booya #gocats #fondfarewell #makingmemories #whatnext #neverforget #almostgraduate #onlyhappenediftheresapicture #5badequalsonegood #allofthedancing #allofthefriendship #godblessamerica #whoruntheworld #isthereahashtaglimit #apparentlynot #dotheyworkinprint #nahdontcare #moretagsthebetter #lovethehashtags #additionalhashtaghere #deathtoallbutmetal

Your student body president,

Lindy Madduck
