Position:  Academic Affairs Representative

Why did you join the Senate:  I joined Senate because I am passionate about representing my peers and creating positive change. This year we have a change to make our campus a more inclusive place through including a new representative to work toward decolonization and reparations. I am determined to represent the voices of the students to work towards our mission of creating a diverse and welcoming campus. 

What is your favorite spot on campus: The high top table on the first floor of the Main next to the big window! The lighting is incredible and the view in the winter is priceless.
