Under Class Representative


Olivia Engling

Name: Olivia Engling

Year: Sophmore

Studying: Peace Studies & Psychology

Why did you join Senate: I've loved my time so far 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!

How long have you been on Senate: I'm very excited to start my first semester with the Senate!

Favorite studying spot on campus: I love studying outside in the grassy area near the Main.

Other activities on campus: Operations Manager at Community Kitchen, Peace Studies Club Co-President, Extending the Link, Crew Team, Bonner, Upward Bound tutor, JEC, and volunteering at the McCarthy Center.
