StuGov Letter

Author: Patrick Lee and Sofie Stitt

We’d like to start our letters to you with the two most underutilized words in the English language: “thank you.” Thank you to the previous administration, especially Allan, Matty, and Alix, for all your hard work, which has put Notre Dame in a position to succeed. And thank you, students, for allowing us to serve as the next Student Government administration. We are looking forward to an exciting and impactful year.

Stinson and Sherman Prioritize Inclusion, Accessibility

Author: Genevieve Redsten

Sierra Stinson and Dane Sherman learned to love Notre Dame. Now they want to lead it as student body president and vice president. 

“The reason we are running is because we love Notre Dame, but that love took work,” Stinson said. “At least for me, that love was really hard.”

Stinson, a junior, and Sherman, a sophomore, have each struggled, at times, finding their place in the Notre Dame community. Both hail from the state of Washington — Stinson from Spokane, Sherman from Seattle. It took some time, they said, to adjust to the culture of Notre Dame.

Prior to Notre Dame’s winter break, junior Patrick Lee and sophomore Sofie Stitt had no intentions of running for student government president and vice president. However, their mutual love for the Notre Dame community and the special people that compose it called them to continue serving the student body if they are elected this week.
