How long have you been on Senate: This will be my third year on Senate.
Why did you join Senate: I joined Senate as a sophomore because I saw it as a great way to get involved, learn more about the two institutions, and help make an impact on campus. I remained on Senate for three years because I believe the influence Senate has on campus is important and I love being apart of the organization.
Favorite study spot on campus: You can find me at the booths in the Alcuin Library basement.
Other activities on campus: I am also the Johnnie Bennie Campus News Executive Producer, a mentor through Big Brother Big Sister, volunteer as a Student Ambassador for CSB/SJU.
