SAS Student Union Chair
Hi, everyone! My name is Minjoo Kim, and I’m your SAS Student Union Chair. My job is to make the Student Union inviting and aesthetically pleasing and to keep it fully functioning throughout the school year. I recently sent out a school-wide survey to gauge what students want to see happen in the Student Union and to collect some constructive feedback. Thank you to those who participated. I received over one hundred responses that have been valuable in helping me move forward with my goals for the year. I am working to follow through with your requests and ideas as soon as possible.
For those of you who might not already know, the Student Union has many resources for student use. It is located on the second floor of Malott Commons, with access from the stairs near the entrance of Seal Court or from the stairs in the main courtyard by the entrance to Malott. The Student Union is a universally-accessible space, with elevators located on the right side of Malott’s main courtyard that are accessible 24/7. The Student Union also has lockers available for rent at the start of every semester, with priority given to off-campus students. If you are looking to reserve meeting rooms or the Student Union’s main area, you can go on the SAS website under the resources tab, select Student Union and fill out a reservation form. You can also shoot me an email at for any specific event or meeting requests. The Student Union also has art supplies, a vending machine, a TV, computers and a printer available for Scripps student use.
I have been working closely with different departments at Scripps to ensure that the Student Union will reach its full potential as a student hub at Scripps. With your survey responses in mind, I am in the process of redesigning the space. SAS is also updating the computers and the printer, so be on the lookout for them in the near future.
If you have questions or concerns you want to bring up about our campus, facilities and/or survey requests, please contact me. I look forward to working with you for the remaining school year. Good luck with the rest of your midterms!
