On November 5, 2008, Student Government Association, The Office of Campus Life at the Biscayne Bay Campus and the FIU Alumni Association hosted its first SGA Alumni Reunion in the Marine Science Building. Over 30 staff members and SGA board members joined over 30 SGA alumni as they returned to campus for the reunion. Elias Bardawil, the first BBC SGA president, was joined by numerous past members including congressional aide Alex Levy, Michael Hepburn of the NFL and Miss Africa USA’s Mfonobong Essiet .
With festivities from 6:30pm – 7:30pm, all those in attendance had a chance to catch up on old times, while SGA president Ana Maria Silva introduced the current board. With a larger than expected turnout, it was pleasing to see how many alumni not only take pride in their alma mater, but are also looking forward to returning next year for the event.
