Excerpts From The Prospector
The keys jingle as he opens the door to his new presidential office and Roberto Dominguez, junior biochemistry major, smiles back at his fellow Student Government Association-elected officers.
He welcomes them in. “This is your office as well,” he tells the other representatives, who walk in to see the spacious quarters. “Feel welcomed all the time.”
Dominguez officially began his presidential term on June 9, and he’s already been drawing up ideas in his agenda for his presidency.
Dominguez and the other elected officers, were sworn-in on May 30 at the annual ceremony held at the Hoover House, President Diana Natalicio’s home. Ther he addressed his new team, members of Student Affairs and fellow Miners. He assured them that his main goal was to have more direct contact with the student body at UTEP.
“I definitely want to see more interaction between SGA and the student body this year,” Dominguez said. Casually dressed in a T-shirt, blue jeans and a cap, Dominguez seemed at ease.
Brother Dominguez was previously the Vice President of External Affairs for the 2013-2014 SGA. He ran independently to bring his key viewpoints, experience and suggestions asking the student body what they wanted to change and what they wanted to see in Student Government.
