During his reign as Mr. DSU, Mr. Cyrus said he would like to make students more comfortable in approaching the Student Government Association. “I would also like to put in more mentoring programs on campus, and especially reach out to freshmen males,” he said. “I want to help bridge the gap between students and administration.”
