SGA President

Bud Sheppard, business management and classical studies sophomore, currently serves as senator-at-large in SGA. Sheppard said that SGA could do more to communicate with students by being available during the day and by making it clear to students who their representatives are. He has said that it is the job of the student government to ensure that students are constantly informed on current events. He said that he will communicate the entire truth to students. He also aims to create a working constitution that does not require constant change. He said he encourages students to follow SGA on Twitter, Facebook and OrgSync in order to stay in touch with the goings-on within SGA.

Martin Quintero, political science junior, currently serves as senator-at-large in SGA. Quintero said that SGA does not currently operate autonomously and, if elected as president, he will make efforts to change that. Quintero said he believes that the constitution should not be adjusted frequently. He said he encourages more open forums with students, in which students voice their concerns and SGA representatives must respond to their constituents. He said he wants to increase student participation and wants to make sure that senators are approachable.

 

 

 

SGA Vice President

Allison Cormier, political science sophomore, currently serves as a senator-at-large in SGA. She has been in charge of the smoking task force to address the issue of smoking on campus. Cormier said that she believes SGA should serve as a lobbying tool between administration and students. Cormier said that senators should not have to wait for administration meetings once a month to address students' issues. She said that she believes SGA should take a more active role in voicing those issues. "We are the voice of the students and if we are not communicating those issues then we are not doing our role," Cormier said. Cormier said that unless she is not fully informed herself, or it is regarding a legal issue, then all information will be shared with students. 

 

 

 

 

Nate Ryther, economics sophomore, currently serves as a senator for the college of business. He has been in charge of the sustainability task force and is also a member of the finance committee. Ryther said that he believes SGA's social media should be used more to communicate with students. Ryther said that he thinks once information is made available, it is then up to the student to become involved. Ryther also said that he believes it is SGA's duty to be open with the student body. "The Student Government Association is here to work for the students and that involves being totally open and transparent with them," Ryther said.
