DeVivo, Kelli Smith, vice president of student affairs and Elaine White, dean of students gave welcome addresses to a crowd of eager students in the main lobby. Following her address, Elaine White introduced the Student Government Association President Wole Barnarde ’22 who was sworn into office.

“We want to encourage students to be active in the community to enhance their student experience at Vaughn,” said Barnarde ’22. “I remember being a freshman and how interaction with my peers and community supplemented my college experience.”
