Meet Your New Student Senate President

Story by Lauren Nelson

Hey there! My name is Lauren Nelson and I am going to be your Student Senate President for the 2014-2015 school year. My majors are Business Administration and Political Science and I am also an RA in Kroske hall.I have a passion for people and for the University of Sioux Falls, so I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to work collaboratively with the students, the Senate, faculty, and administration at USF.

We have a fantastic, newly elected Student Senate executive team for the upcoming school year: Sophie Harano is Vice President, Seth Lewis is treasurer, and Rachel Thornton is secretary.

Folks, there are bright things on the horizon.

We have added 5 new seats to the Senate next year in the form of an Activities Committee. The Activities Committee will work closely with the Student Activities Coordinator to plan and execute events on campus, and we are very excited to have them affiliated and working with the Senate! We believe that the addition of the Activities Committee will be a more efficient and effective way to plan activities that you, the students, would appreciate!

Remember, the function of Student Senate is to fund student clubs and represent the interests of the students, so if you ever have questions, concerns, or ideas about how you could enhance something about our great school, locate a Student Senator and express your thoughts to them.

We want to hear from you! I look forward to working with all of you in the year to come. Have a great summer and get excited about next year!

Go Cougars!
