Academic Affairs Representative

Olivia Engling

Name: Olivia Engling

Year: Junior

Studying: Peace Studies and Psychology

Why did you join Senate:  I've loved my time at St. Ben's, and having experienced amazing opportunities, want to be part of continuing both that tradition and fostering new growth. Senate continually works to make St. Ben's the best it can be, which I want to be a part of, especially in fostering a sense of home and genuine connection that every individual at our school deserves. Reaching out to students and enabling them to share their voice is one of the catalysts for that, as well as making the Senate more accessible to everyone and creating more opportunities for growth. I want to be part of a Senate that always works to connect with and represent the students!

Where do you see yourself in 20 years: Living a life of meaningful work and loving relationships!
