My name is Joseph Rizzo, and I am interested in running for Swarthmore Student Council Campus Life Representative. I believe that I will thrive in this position because my mission, like that of the Campus Life Representative, is to further improve the relationship and communications between Student Council and the Swarthmore student body. I am a member of the baseball team and a member and Delta Upsilon Fraternity. In DU I have worked regularly as a liaison between the fraternities and administration. I have made it my goal to make the fraternity a safe and welcoming a place on campus. Beyond the fraternity, however, I have supported a variety of groups at the college. My enthusiastic personality is contagious. It extends from the classroom, the athletic field, to my role as a student at Swarthmore. I view my role as a student here to contribute to a thriving campus, from the administration those enrolled. If elected, I would contribute positively to a thriving campus through dedication, enthusiasm, and love for all things Swarthmore.
