Student Government Association President Matt Sikorski

Interested in learning more about our SGA President Matt Sikorski? Her Campus Towson editor-in-chief  Alexandra Pannoni interviewed him on why he loves Towson and what he is hoping to accomplish this year!

Looking back on his favorite memories at Towson, our SGA President, Matt Sikorski, doesn’t recall a wild party or an unprecedented win by the Tigers, but rather the more laid-back times he had with his friends. In fact, he goes on to describe his favorite memories as the Friday and Saturday nights he spent hanging out with his floor in the Resident Tower freshmen year.

“My freshmen year I had a great floor,” he said. “Every Friday and Saturday night around 12 a.m. we would all order Chinese food. We had this coupon for a free meal if you spent $30 or more so whoever was poor that week got the free dinner.”

It was those chill times hanging out with his floor freshmen year that made him fall in love with Towson.

“I had a really good freshmen year,” he said. “I fell in love with the people.”

In the fall of his freshmen year, he decided to run for a position as a building council member on University Resident Government and as a freshmen senator on the SGA. He figured he would only win one, but to his surprise he won both. He spent freshmen year fulfilling the duties of both positions.

“I wanted to fix people’s problems,” he said. “I have no aspiration for political office. I’m just a lover of doing.”

Matt worked on the SGA and URG for two years. Then, his junior year he decided to run for vice president of the SGA. He lost that campaign. So instead of sitting around, Matt got even more involved. He wrote a column for the Towerlight, became a student ambassador, a transfer orientation leader, and was a founding member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.

“I really fell in love [with Towson] when I got involved,” he said. “ I got an outside view from the SGA.”

His senior year he decided to give running for SGA another shot, except this time he ran for president.

“I had a vision of what I wanted Towson to be,” he said.

This time he won. This year he has a blueprint to make Towson the best it can be. The plan includes four main elements. The first is “Towsonfying Campus” which is a term Matt coined. He wants the campus to have more visual Towson elements and create more Towson spirit. His plan is also to enhance the student experience, improve student group support, and expand community outreach.

Some of Matt’s ideas include creating a website called “TU-Review.com”-which would be similar to RateMyProfessor.com, but more in-depth. He’s also working on a “Prove-It” fund to supplement student groups funds for activities that are not otherwise budgeted.

Above all he wants all students to know that for all the problems they may have with Towson, the faculty and staff really care about what they are doing.

“There are always issues at every college like parking and advising,” he said. “However there are administrators and staff here that truly love this place.”

In closing, Matt wants this year to be as amazing as possible.

“We are really going to blast this year out,” he said.
