Position Running For: Class of 2017 Vice President

Why are you running for this position?

I have been successful and had fun being VP for the past two years. I want to continue to help planning fun events and uniting our class.

What do you hope to accomplish at this position during the 2015/2016 year?

I want to continue to plan great events to help our class bond. Specifically next year, we have the junior/senior picnic and the dodge ball tournament to plan.

If you could improve anything on campus, regardless of what it would take, what would it be and why?

The food. It could be healthier, better tasting, and have more variety. I currently attend Food Council meetings and advocate for this.

What is your favorite and least favorite thing about college? Explain:

My favorite thing about college is the freedom: you are free to choose your own major and classes, and you manage your own time and social activities. My least favorite thing about college is the high stress environment that it can produce sometimes.

Why do you think it’s important for students to participate in the UA or other campus activities?

We all share a similar experience, going to Naz, and I think we can bond over that, but we also are interesting in our own ways. Attending events allows us to open our personal circle to those who we those who we don’t know very well or at all.

Are there any new initiatives or programs you are looking to introduce?

We do not have any definite plans for next year besides the picnic and the dodge ball tournament, but we do have some general ideas for new events.

Chinese take out or tacos? I couldn’t decide. I would want both at the same meal. I love food.

Ravenclaw. I love to learn and think about things, including academics but also life in general.
