While serving as the Vp of Finance, I intend to better educate clubs and organizations on how to submit proper budgets. I will also like to regulate budgets to make sure that events are given the appropriate funds – so spending does not go out of hand. Overall, I would like to change the negative perception of budgets to a positive one. When looking at a budget sheet I would love for clubs and organizations to know what is needed to be placed before submitted to me.

Chief of Staff Candidates: 

Paul Appiah

Eric Fantauzzi

Vice President of Judicial and Compliance:

Ayowande Ayodele


My Platform is to empower club members to become passionate about their clubs so as to empower the NYIT community. I want to make sure e-board members dedicate to their mission statement. I believe that clubs are losing the passion to run their club successfully and my solution is to help club understand the system; learn how to use it to their advantage so it will not overshadow the purpose of the club thereby benefiting the NYIT community which will help the clubs leave a legacy. 

Vice President of Programming:

Duaa Ibrahim


Being in the epicenter of New York City, NYIT Manhattan students do not have the traditional college experience, and there are ways to compensate for our commuter students. Programming should bring the NYIT community together. If the apparent commonality amongst NYIT students is classes and hectic schedules, why not work to build more bridges by having events that are as diverse and dynamic as we are?


NYIT’s Student Government Association (SGA) is the official voice of the student body. The SGA advocates on behalf of student interests—academic, cultural, and social. It is charged with working with the college’s faculty and administration to improve every facet of campus life. In addition, the SGA oversees the budgeting process for all recognized student clubs and organizations and supports a variety of campus-wide events. If you have questions, concerns, or want to get involved in campus life at NYIT, the SGA is here for you. For more information, stop by the SGA office located at 1849 Broadway, 2nd floor room 201, e-mail sgamanha@nyit.edu or call 212-261-1558.

There are two main branches of the SGA—an executive board and a legislative senate. Student representatives from a variety of disciplines are elected annually. Want to know more? Check out the SGA constitution (PDF).
