Dear Fellow Lions,

Our ASLMU team would like to welcome you to the 2017-2018 academic year! As your undergraduate student government organization, it is our mission to serve for and with you in pursuit of the greater good for the larger campus community. This year we will strive to engage, enrich, and enliven. 

We will engage by elevating our programs to new heights and connecting with our student organizations on a deeper level. Get excited for our signature programs like Fallapalooza, Christmas Tree Lighting, Comedy for a Cause, and After Sunset. Be on the lookout for bigger and more purposeful programming from our Programming and University Affairs teams as well. Communication and the provision of resources to students and organizations will be a top priority of ours this year to help ensure all groups have what they need to be successful. 

We will enrich campus climate by fostering an inclusive community where all groups are represented and measures for enacting positive change are actively pursued. With a newly structured Senate- comprised of 21 representatives for different constituency groups- we aim to ensure all are heard and informed. Furthermore, our team intends on bringing students, departments, and administration closer together than ever before to maintain transparency and spark the changes you want to see on campus. 

It is our hope that these efforts will enliven your LMU experience and enhance your fulfillment here on the bluff. We desire for you to take pride in your piece of the puzzle at LMU and have the ability to showcase what it is that you stand for. Above all, we want you to thoroughly enjoy your time here and take so much pride in being a Lion. 

If you are interested in getting involved with ASLMU, please consider joining an ASLMU Committee by visiting our website or LMU EXP Online page. Also, ASLMU General Elections for the 2018-2019 academic year will take place in the Spring semester, so be on the lookout for more information coming soon! 

We look forward to piecing it together with you this year. Go Lions!

In Community and Kinship,
