Student Senator, Academic Seat 19

University of Oregon

I was elected by the University of Oregon student body to represent the voice of journalism and communication majors in the student senate. All students pay an incidental fee each term (around $200), constituting a 12 million dollar budget that we allocate throughout the year. I am one of 10 academic senators, each elected by students in their same major to advocate for their constituency in the senate process. This position has given me a special opportunity to realize the big picture at the University of Oregon and develop a connection with it that I never imagined. Being an integral part of this picture is an honor and a privilege that I thank my fellow journalism and communications students for.

Executive Outreach Coordinator, Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO)

University of Oregon

The Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO) is a student government. I was appointed to the executive team as the outreach coordinator, where I promoted the ASUO throughout campus. All University of Oregon students who pay the incidental fee are technically members of the ASUO, but because so few take advantage of this membership's benefits, it was my job to build awareness and interest. From designing apparel to brochures and display boards, this position ignited my passion for the ASUO and drove me to pursue a career in communication. The ASUO expanded my horizon, allowing me to branch out of the Greek community and meet some of the most diverse, intelligent and passionate individuals I have ever met.

Panhellenic Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations

Holden Leadership Center

The fraternity and sorority community, also known as "Greek Life" makes up approximately 10% of the University of Oregon student body. Panehllenic Council (PHC) governs the sorority community, just as the Interfratenal Council (IFC) governs the fraternity community and both councils are elected by chapter leaders. Each PHC position is paired with an IFC counterpart, so I was faced with the challenge of collaborating with my counterpart, our joint council and the greek community to design a values based campaign. Our campaign, to be implemented in the summer of 2010, is a web design, social networking, print ad, poster and mailer renovation plan called "Think Greek". It is so rewarding to have been a leader in the collective vision of our Greek community's future image at the University of Oregon and, in turn, across the country.
