Hello everyone! My name is Matthew Logan, I am from Mansfield, TX, and I am a Senior studying Hospitality Administration with a focus in Travel & Tourism.
Throughout my Lumberjack Experience, I have been involved in the Freshmen Leadership Academy, Student Activities Association, Orientation Programs, Night Manager at Student Center, and the Jack Walker Program. My most recent accomplishment was accepting the position to serve one year term on the Board of Regents as the Student Regent.
As the Student Regent, it is be my responsibility to share the point of view of the SFA students to the Regents. During the meetings, when a students’ opinion is needed, I will have the opportunity to voice the students’ opinions and they will be considered when an important decision is made.
I just returned from Austin, Texas to attend the Student Regent training seminar. I am thrilled to serve on the board and represent the student body for our university.
My appointment to the board.

I am having an amazing time exploring Italy! This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far! I have been to Rome, Vatican City, Castel Gandolfo, Assisi, and I'm currently in Florence! Studying abroad has been so fun!!
This past weekend was Blueberry Festival! Every year Nacogdoches closes downtown for blueberry lemonade, vendors and rides out to the blueberry farm. This year Grant Korbel (Jack Walker) and I had a great time and ate way too many blueberries! So, if you are ever in town over the summer, be sure to check out this fun festival in the heart of our town.
SFA's most beautiful, and best smelling, flower! Gardenias currently line the Student Center and Admissions office, adding the most beautiful scent to campus! Just another thing that makes SFA so gorgeous.
This past week Matthew Logan (JW Lead), Erika Bazzle (JW Lead), and Ryan Horne (Assistant Director Admissions) attended the 2013 CIVSA conference in Washington D.C. In between learning about other tour programs, meeting with schools across the country, and sharing information about our own organization, we were able to squeeze in a fair amount of sightseeing. It was an amazing weekend for all of us!!!
