4. Run for Student Office
There are 6 student officers who are elected to 1-year positions. These officers help plan college events, market those events to the community, conduct service projects and influence campus decision making. The best part: all student officers are reimbursed for their tuition. Elections packets become available in February in the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement in Gordon 114 or on our website.
You could also run to be the next Student Trustee. They are responsible for sitting on the board of trustees which oversees the college’s president. While the position isn’t reimbursed, the student trustee is a voting member of the Board of Trustees. This means you’ll have a real chance to impact the policy that affects students.
Finally, you could also run to be a Senator-at-large for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. Senators represent specific groups of student’s interests to the college.
