School of Business and Public Affairs to Release First Issue of the Southeast Georgia Coastal Monitor This Week


For BBA student Jessin Oueslati, this is the final project of his senior year. For the Southeast Georgia (SEGA) Joint Development Authority, this is the beginning of much-needed research to help promote viability of economic development for the six-county region of Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn, McIntosh, and Wayne.


Scheduled for release at the end of April, the inaugural issue of Southeast Georgia Coastal Monitor will serve as an introduction to the economy of the southeast Georgia coast, according to Dr. Don Mathews, Professor of Economics. "The text is general and the data cover the past 10 years. The summer issue will provide an overview of the industrial makeup of the region. Once that core information is presented, our research will turn to specific industries."


The SEGA Joint Development Authority commissioned the series of quarterly economic monitoring reports. "The Monitor will be available online in .pdf form. The annual summary, which will come out in January, may also be available in print. That is still to be determined," Dr. Mathews said.


The inaugural issue was researched and authored by a team of three: Jessin Oueslati, an undergraduate research assistant in the School of Business and Public Affairs, Dr. Craig Fleisher, Dean of the School, and Dr. Mathews.


"The Monitor is another example of how our business courses, experiential learning focus, and community engagement come together to enhance regional economic development while enriching our students' learning experience and engaging both students and faculty in applied research and service activities," Dr. Fleisher concluded.



Spring 2011 Student Art Show Closes Friday


The annual student art exhibit continues on display in the lobby of the Southeast Georgia Conference Center through Friday, April 29.


"The show is a selection of highlights from student work over the last academic year," Jeff Lemieux, Assistant Professor of Art, explained.  "We have an amazing level of student talent in our area and our goal is to put some of it on display. Due to limited resources, we're not showing everything that deserves showing, but we hope the College community can come and enjoy what we can set out."


The exhibit hours are noon-4 p.m. daily.

New Student Governmant Association Officers for 2011-2012 Elected by Student Body 


Lindsey Little

Lindsey Little

Almost 200 students participated in the election to select new SGA officers for the coming school year, according to the Office of Student Life. When the votes were tallied, Lindsey Little was elected President; Carrie Gossett was re-elected Vice President, but representing the main campus rather than the Camden Center; Thuydy Nguyen will be the new Vice President, Camden Center; and Sandra Crum will serve as Secretary.


"As president, my goal is to increase club involvement in SGA," Little said. "I'd like to see more coordination between clubs, the Programming Board, and SGA for campus activities. Communication is key to any organization."


Little believes SGA should serve as the student gateway to College administration. "Students need to know the facts - not the rumors - to make informed opinions."


Lakeside Village Residence Hall Director and Assistants Named


Resident Assistants

2011-2012 Coastal Georgia Resident Assistants

Coastal Georgia is another step closer to opening the doors of the first student residence hall on campus. Amber Sutor will serve as full-time director, living in the building and supervising the student resident assistants, according to Dr. Michael Butcher, Director of Residence Life and Housing.


"Amber will join us as beginning June 1," Dr. Butcher said. "She is coming from Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.  She received her Master's degree in College Student Affairs from the University of South Florida.  She has five years of experience as a residence hall director and will be an excellent addition to the Office of Residence Life and Housing team."


Nine students have been selected to serve as resident assistants: Hillary Caton, Laura Griggs, Lindsey Little, Tiffany Curry, Tajhonika Nathaniel, Tyrone Bacon, Dion Edwards, Gustavo Ruiz-Abad, and Gregory Simpson.


In explaining their role, Dr. Butcher noted, "The Resident Assistants are integral members of the Lakeside Village team. They help build community and student interaction while promoting an academically supportive environment. The RAs will provide academic and social programming; create an inclusive and welcoming environment; encourage residents to approach one another with concerns; help ensure a safe and secure environment; and be approachable and accessible."
