Vice President

Sydney Robinson

Name: Sydney Robinson

Year: Senior

Position: Vice President

Studying: English – Creative Writing

Why did you join Senate: I joined Senate because I wanted to give underrepresented Bennies a voice on campus. I want all voices and standpoints on campus to be represented in a place where their voices are usually looked over or ignored. I like Bennie able to look up and see someone from the same background as them in positions like Senate to know their opinions will be heard.

How long have you been on Senate: Two Years.

Favorite study spot on campus: Clemens' Perk Study Booths.

Other activities on campus: Advocates for Inclusive Mentoring, National Society for Leadership Board, Class of 2019 Representative, Bennie Career Closet Student Manager, & Men's Development institution Script Writer.
