Hometown: Austin, Texas
Personal Statement: As Student Body Secretary, I plan to keep senate members on top of their priorities so that Student Senate can better serve the student body and run more efficiently. Working closely with my fellow student body officers and serving as a resource to whole senate chamber will also help senate be more effective. I will work to facilitate clear communication between the Student Senate, the SMU administration, and the student body. Lastly, passing meaningful legislation and helping to better educate senators is also on my agenda.
St. Louis Missouri
This year I hope we as the 99th Student Senate can promote improvements in
the older areas on campus such as the Health Center. We will be exploring
ways to see increased Mustang School Spirit particularly now that SMU is a
member of the Big East. In addition, I would like to see students have the
ability to withdraw from their classes without a permanent "W" on their
record, if they choose to drop the class within two weeks of the beginning
of the term. (Working on this last piece of legislation will require
collaboration with the Faculty Senate.)
