MBS Student News - Updates from Student Government
With the success of events like Oktoberfest and a joint Halloween party with the Claremont Graduate University, KGI Student Government (SG) is in full swing. I recently had an opportunity to sit down with Student Body President, Khush Bhesania for a short chat about her vision for SG.
As an international student who came to KGI seeking a comprehensive educational experience, Khush ran for Student Body President last spring and has been doing a commendable job since her election. Since its inception, SG has slowly been gaining momentum, providing new services to the student body each year.
For the 2010-2011 school year, regular annual programming of big events has been firmly established. In addition to Oktoberfest and the annual Halloween party, our upcoming events include a Diwali celebration complete with food and student performances, an International Food Festival, and a Spring BBQ Competition to name a few. With regular programming in place to enrich student life, Khush hopes to work within SG to improve Student Services on the professional front.
With the recent institution of the Bioscience Management Club (BMC), this initiative is off to a great start. The BMC offers the opportunity for passionate student leaders to engage with KGI’s professional network in setting up informative events for students such as workshops in case study interviews, business etiquette, and even a Q&A session with consulting practitioners from Deloitte. In expanding the scope of the BMC, creating a KGI Professional Code, establishing stronger relationships with other Claremont Colleges, and instituting regular town hall meetings, KGI SG is striving to solicit and address the concerns of students.
KGI SG is fairly large considering the size of the student body, allowing students the opportunity to not only gain leadership skills but also allows them an active role in their education.
