Academic Affairs Representative

Carissa Flores

Name: Carissa Flores

Year: Sophomore 

Why did you join Senate: It's a great opportunity to help voice everyone's opinion and allow the community of Saint Ben’s to grow and be more connected. I want to be a constant part of improving CSB|SJU. I love helping people, getting to know people, and bringing people together and Senate is the perfect outlet for that. More than anything I want to be someone that ANYONE can come to.

How long have you been on Senate: This is my second year. 

Favorite study spot on campus: The computer lab in my dorm better knows as my office by my floormates. It gets just the right amount of traffic. Not too busy, not too isolated. It's a perfect ways to get to know the girls on my floor!

Other activities on campus: Element Dance Club, Homework Helpers, Fides et Ratio, Women's Choir,
ELAC, Spanish Club,
