Long-Term Leadership

Liz Hamak ’24 knew when she went off to college that she needed and wanted to get involved on campus. In the fall of 2020 though, “involved” looked a lot different than it ever had. “A lot of clubs and organizations were essentially shut down or meeting over Zoom,” she recalls. Then she learned about a special election to fill the community relations representative spot on the Saint Ben’s Senate. She got in … and hasn’t left yet. “After a semester on Senate, I realized it was the perfect fit,” she says. Liz served three years as the community relations representative. Now, during her senior year, she’s still on Saint Ben’s Senate – this time as vice president. “I love the mission of making the student experience the best it can be,” Liz explains. “Working toward that alongside other strong women leaders at a mission-driven institution like Saint Ben’s doesn’t even feel like work to me. Year after year, I’ve truly felt called and compelled to keep going. “My hope is that the CSB Senate normalizes positions of leadership for every woman who serves – and that we can pave the way for other Bennie leaders to thrive on our campus and in our world.”
