Since our election last February, we’ve watched the national climate influence our work on campus.
There is always a buzz in the spring semester that sets it apart — for us, that buzz carries with it the realization that we are closing our final two months in office, but also excitement for all that is still left to come.
This past month, we saw the resurgence of the #MeToo campaign on social media.
We ran on the idea of flipping the model; that is, coming to you rather than always asking you to come to us. We are excited to take that vision to the next level with our upcoming project, Town Halls On-the-Go.
It has been a busy first month of the semester in the student government office. Our entire team — the Executive Cabinet, departments, Senate, and other branches in the Student Union — has been planning events and improving policies just about every day. All of their work is based off the student feedback and ideas shared from the time of our campaign in February to now.
With April 1 finally here, we couldn’t be more excited to officially take office and continue our work.
"April 1 — our team’s official first day — is fast approaching, but we have already begun our work."
