Q: As the new Outreach Coordinator, what will you implement first?

A: I will establish a greater presence on social networking sites for the SLC in order to connect with the student body. I feel that the current state of the SLC’s twitter and facebook makes the organization come across as isolated- so I really want to make it so that people know we are very connected with COD’s many clubs, events, and organizations.


Q: What are you most excited about in the future?

A: I am very excited to be working alongside such bright and creative individuals and I can’t wait to hear what ideas we come up with together!


Q: Did you think you were going to win?

A: I tried to keep a positive attitude, but I really didn’t think I was going to. I was extremely nervous, so I made sure I prepped a ton and I think that really helped.


Q: What are you most excited about to get involved with?

A: There is talk of a concert being put together by a few students and I am really looking forward to working with them. They have a really awesome vision and I want to help them achieve it.


Q: What’s your biggest priority?

A: Connecting with the student body and making sure that when someone says “SLC” they know who we are, what we do, and that anyone is welcome to join and make a difference on campus.


Q: Will you run for the same position next year?

A: Yes, I can already tell that I’m going to love this position- and since I’ll be here until next May, why not?


Q: Any future goals?

A: I want to Improve my leadership skills, Improve SLC meeting attendance, Improve SLC membership and Increase student awareness of SLC (events, meetings, goals, committees, etc).
