For three years I have been fortunate enough to be a part of this incredible student body. As I reflect on my time at Swat, I have come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to give back to the Swarthmore community, specifically the great student body. As a member of the Swarthmore community I’ve been incredibly lucky to be a part of the baseball team, DARTeam, Delta Upsilon fraternity, SAC and an RA. My experience with different campus organizations has given me a deep understanding of what students love about Swarthmore and what they want to change. Essentially, my job as your Campus Life Representative would be to act as the liaison between the student body and the administration. As your Campus Life Representative I would actively seek out student body suggestions and complaints and ensure that they are heard by the administration. The student council can improve communications with the student body by creating surveys with questions better suited to get at the needs and desires of students. The student body deserves an active voice working to make your experience here as enjoyable as possible. Once we identify your concerns on campus, we can work with the administration to instill positive change on this campus that would create a more enjoyable experience for us and for future generations of Swatties. So let’s work together and better this already great campus. I’d appreciate your vote for Campus Life Representative. Thanks!
