“Hey guys! I’m Jeanine, but everyone calls me “j9,” so you’re welcome to call me that too! I love FCA, and everything about it: the sports (we always have a blast no matter what we’re playing), the dancing (which I do, although I am not coordinated), community service, etc. As your president, I want to give you, the general body, what you are looking for in a cultural organization. With your feedback, I hope to make this a fun year for everyone. The 2010-2011 years looks like it will be packed with tons of events, so come out and enjoy it with us! There are a ton of ways to get involved and it really is a good time. We usually hang out in the STAMP food court between classes, so stop by sometime and just say hi :). I can’t wait to meet all the new people this year!”
