Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: I choose to participate in Macalester College Student Government because is provides an opportunity to engage with the student body and enact change on Macalester’s campus. I have served on the Financial Affairs Committee for the last two years. I have helped allocate the student activity fee to various organizations that are vital to maintaining our campus community. I am interested in working on improving mental health resources and diversity on our college’s campus. I also look forward to strengthening MCSG’s relationship with the Career Development Center and Admissions in the upcoming year.

Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: I decided to participate in student government because I wanted to give more back to the community. I think student government is an important aspect of the Macalester community because it serves as a way for the student body to have its interests represented in how the school is run, and I want to help make sure those interests are heard and addressed.

Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: I chose to run for Student Government in my second year at Mac because I noticed that few people, myself included, knew what MCSG does for the community. I hoped to make the organization more accessible for people who have ideas about what they want to change about Mac but don’t know where to start. I think that the more effective the links between the student body and administration, the better we are able to make change.

Importance of Student Government and Important Issues: I believe that more support should be provided for lower income students, especially first years. Macalester has all of the organizations and resources needed; what we need to do now is connect the students with the means to best take advantage of those resources. I want to help with that process.
