Although a significant
amount of candidate bashing
took place during last spring's
student government elections,
Nikita Williams, a senior
Biology major from Rocky

Winston-State University 1995
Williams did not resort to

holders of the coveted title
were just figureheads.
“I want to have an active
voice in the SGA. When I
voice my opinion I want them
to take me seriously and not
look at me as just a figure
head,” she said.
Miss WSSU plans to
make Winston-Salem State
University more visible to
people in the community.
“I want to make WSSU
seen by all people and when
they see we have some
intelligent young black men
and women attending the
university, they may take us
more seriously,” said
Williams is a member of
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.,
the varsity cheerleading squad,
Alpha Kappa Mu Honor
Society and Project
Over the summer,
Williams traveled to Finland
and worked in a lab
researching arthritis. The trip
was made possible through
Project Strengthen. She was
very excited about being
chosen to make the trip and
brought back many ideas,
techniques and skills that will
help her further pursue her
interest in Medicine.
