Sustainability Representative


Laura Precourt

Name: Laura Precourt

Year: Senior

Position: Sustainability Representative

Studying: Political Science and French

Why did you join Senate: I joined Senate in order to be a voice for sustainable ventures, of all kinds, that Bennies want to see undertaken at CSB. I also was excited by the opportunity to LEAD!

Favorite study spot on campus: First of all, studying is a total blast! I would say my favorite spot is by the windows in Clemens when it is sunny. Otherwise, to be totally honest, I love studying in Alcuin in the room with all the windows in the learning commons. Basically, anywhere that is sunny.

How long have you been on Senate: I have been on Senate since the Spring of 2018.

Other activities on campus: CSB Women's Choir. Bonner Leader Program. Brandl Scholar. Eco House Representative. I also work at the Minnesota Street Market in St. Joe! Come in for a cookie or a bunch of kale!
