Personal Statement: Through Senate I hope to streamline communication between the Cox school and its students to make sure that students are completely able to utilize the services available in Cox. Additionally I hope to increase representation of pre-business students in Cox by factoring their opinions into the overall student body of Cox.

Majors: Financial Consulting and Political Science
Personal Statement: One of my main goals for senate this year is to pass legislation promoting the development of more outdoor study areas for students to utilize. Being in Texas, we have several months of weather that would be great for studying outside. Unfortunately there are not nearly enough study areas to take advantage. I would like to see more tables placed in open areas for students to enjoy.

Personal Statement: I plan on accomplishing the task of representing the students of the Cox School of Business and making sure they feel they are being heard and getting what they want from Student Senate to the best of my ability. Additionally, I plan on creating dialogue between the various disciplines at SMU to learn about other institutions and bring some of Cox to the rest of SMU. I want to help our school, and I want everyone in the entire school to feel involved and have their voice be heard for the changes they want to see.

Major(s): Business Management and Political Science
Personal Statement: As a Cox Senator, I hope to make Student Senate accessible to every student in the Cox School of Business by being consistently available for questions and concerns, resulting in a more transparent student government. In addition to voicing my constituents’ opinions on general university legislation (such as parking, financial aid, and academics), I would like to introduce pieces of legislation specifically intended to foster the Cox School of Business' rising national rankings. Furthermore, I hope to provide particular attention to bridging the gap between MBA students and BBA students at SMU. Finally, I plan to finally address larger issues which have consistently been discussed, yet somewhat avoided, in Senate for several years, such as special representation seats.
