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.
