          At inaugurations this past Monday night, a new Undergraduate Student Government lineup was created and seniors and other transitioning members who had given considerable time to the organization were left to reflect upon their experiences.

          After inauguration, senior and former USG president Duwain Pinder reminisced on his time spent within the organization and what it was like to be leaving the group.

          "It feels bittersweet. I have invested so much into USG and it is a bit difficult letting things go. However, it feels great to reflect on all that USG has accomplished this year and to see the great impact that my time and effort has brought. I am extremely proud of the work that we have done and I am excited about the work that next year's USG assembly will do," he said.

          Pinder also mentioned what he enjoyed most about his USG position. "I greatly enjoyed the representation of the entire undergraduate student body. While being the student body president is a great responsibility, I thoroughly enjoyed reaching out to students and discussing how to improve their experience."

          Though some of the more experienced executive board members and representatives are transitioning out, new USG president Minh-Tri Nguyen is ready for what lies ahead.

          Nguyen remarked that the new faces in USG were a decided strength, describing the new members as motivated, excited, and ready to go. He plans on striving to maintain those sentiments throughout the upcoming year.

          Beyond complimenting the new USG members, Nguyen also shed some light on his plans and expectations for the upcoming year, with CollegiateLink and the international student experience being high priorities.
