By   /   March 22, 2013  /   Comments Off

Gretchen Shelby (Outreach):

Q: What was your favorite memory from this semester?

A: The Harlem Shake, I was in a meeting and I came out and I wasn’t expecting that many people.

Q: What was the biggest goal you accomplished this semester?

A: Probably Harlem Shake, because I had a week to put it together and I was doing it by myself. I also thought the tied blankets was a big accomplishment as well.

Q: Advice to next year’s SLC members?

A: Planning. Plan everything out and act on it. You don’t have to go into specifics.

Q: What can you hope for the future of SLC?

A: I want better student involvement. I think SLC can be the catalyst for that.

 

AJ Knopf (Finance):

Q: What was your favorite memory from this year?

A: Definitely the ropes course in the fall, we grew a lot closer during that.

Q: What was the biggest goal you accomplished this semester?

A: We had planned that every month we would do something and we have actually accomplished that.

Q: Advice to next year’s SLC members?

A: You need to plan now. You can’t plan when you are trying to do something.

Q: What can you hope for the future of SLC?

A: Hopefully getting a service position on SLC. Also that there is a higher attendance and that people start to care about COD with more passion.

 

Taby Kahn (operations):

Q: What was your favorite memory from this semester?

A: I like the memories we have here, I’ve never had to work so close nit and I’ve made them my family. My favorite memory would have to be food and one time we were trying cafeteria sushi and it was fun to just do stuff together.

Q: What was the biggest goal you accomplished this semester?

A: We’ve accomplished so much, it’s incredible. As a group we’ve all accomplished this area of communication and I think that’s a really big thing.

Q: Advice to next year’s SLC members?

A: If I don’t come back, my advice would be to not only use what we have incorporated in SLC but to advance with it.

 

Olivia Martin (student trustee):

Q: What was your favorite memory from this year?

A: I really enjoyed working with service committee and heading that with AJ. I was apprehensive to take on serve committee because its like leading a small club, but I really feel rewarded by it.

Q: What was the biggest goal you accomplished this semester?

A: I feel really gratified by the town halls that we have had because i feel that those have been the times we have gotten the most information across to students.

Q: Advice to next year’s SLC members?

A: Definitely work on planning. You can plan the best ideas, but it does not matter if you do not act on it.

 

Sam Ortega (Vice President):

Q: What was your favorite memory from this year?

A: There was one time when we went to the Wheaton Rope Course and  I remember trying to get to work through the struggle. It was the most time where I got to bond with my team members.

Q: What was the biggest goal you accomplished this semester?

A: In terms of creating a constitution that will move on for years to come, i think that was the most important part of the year.

Q: What can take from being a member of SLC?

A: This year really made me realize the importance of student leadership. The experiences you get from being a leader at this level can propel you to something else in your future.

 

Hank Gordon (President):

 

Q: What was your favorite memory from this year?

A: I know we had a great time at the ropes course and hanging out with each other. You really find out who you want having your back.

Q: What was the biggest goal you accomplished this semester?

A: Last semester was when we had that really successful town hall meeting with Sodexo. The Harlem Shake was really successful as well.

Q: Advice to next year’s SLC members?
