SGA President Looks Forward to Creating Traditions

Alberto Saint Juste

As a high school student at G-Star School School of the Arts, Alberto Saint Juste enjoyed acting, television production and 3D animation, but the business world was also calling the Boynton Beach, Florida native’s name.   

“Ever since I was a child I knew that I wanted to work in the business world, but the showbiz industry was a draw as well. That’s why Northwood University Florida is such a good fit,” smiled the sophomore who first heard about Northwood when professor Jennifer McFarland visited his high school. “My Northwood experience provides me the opportunity to become an entrepreneur, possibly in the world of entertainment,” he said.

Now having won the race for Student Government Association (SGA) president, Juste looks forwarding to putting his artistic abilities, business acumen and event planning skills to good use. “I’d love to help develop new and interesting activities that help to create new traditions – both on and off campus,” said the advertising and marketing major who served as last year’s SGA public relations chair.

With the mission of representing and protecting the interests of the student body, SGA groups further positive growth and change while encouraging students and organizations to uphold the Northwood idea, increase student involvement and organizational participation, distribute and administer designated funds, and enhance the unique college experience. While enhancing co-curricular activities on their respective campuses, SGA student leaders regularly communicate with the student body and with campus administrators.

The mission of G-Star School of the Arts is to prepare and educate students to demonstrate mastery in the arts and academics ("artademics"), to achieve physical, social, emotional, and intellectual wellness and to implement career goals and strategies.
