Interesting Hobbies: I love biking down to the river, when I'm not super busy getting MCSG organized (SOC pun intended)!
Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: The answer's simple - There is a palpable difference between the thoughts of staff and students on how the college should function. Student government helps us bridge that gap, to a degree controlled by us mostly! Why can't I use my meal swipes for chicken tenders? About time! On a more serious note, I have been part of discussions directed to make Cafe Mac better address the varying needs of Mac students.

Interesting Hobbies: I love playing recreational tennis, and following professional tennis
Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: I think student government is important not only for students to have a say in administrative decisions or have their voice heard, but also as an opportunity for them to give back to a community that provides them with so much. It is a lovely way to get know what Macalester is all about, beyond classes and other extracurriculars. As for campus topics, I think it is important to talk about the pressing issues or concerns students have. This constantly changes, but it is exciting to hear the different ideas and perspectives that Macalester students always bring to the table!

Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: Student Government adds more value to student's experience because they get to have a voice in decisions made at Macalester. I am interested in increasing transparency and communication between organizations and the student body.
