GRANITE STATE COLLEGE NAMES TWO TO UNIVERSITY SYSTEM STUDENT BOARD
Granite State College students have elected two of their peers to represent them on the University System Student Board (USSB). The USSB is made up of two students from each of the University System of New Hampshire (USNH) institutions.
Ricky Fife- USSB Student Trustee
I was born here in New Hampshire and joined the Navy shortly after high school. I spent 10 years in the Navy (2005-2015) and I got out January of 2015. Since then I have been working as an engineer at Dell in Dover, NH. I live in Somersworth with my wife and 2 year old son. I am working towards my BS in Technology Management and intend to follow that with my Master's. As a veteran, parent, and working full-time I understand the demands that many students face today. Please consider voting for me as your student representative.
Bill Cole- USSB Representative
My name is Bill Cole and I have been studying in the Project Management graduate program since 2015. I have always had a passion for being involved in my community and organization. While at school at the University of Southern Maine for my undergraduate degree (B.S. in Criminology in 2012) I was on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC: 2010-2012) which was an organization that acted as a liaison between the athlete community and the University leadership. While serving in the New Hampshire Air National Guard I was involved in the enlisted council which brought issues affecting the enlisted force to the attention of the organizational leadership. Both of these experiences have helped put me in the position to be an advocate for my peers.
The USSB exists to advise the USNH’s Board of Trustees and each of its committees on all topics of interest to the students. Both Ricky and Bill will serve a one-year term representing Granite State College.
