Running for Student Council

Big question for everyone: do you know who your Student Council representatives are?

There are two representatives for every institute at USG. They are great resources for you if you have any concerns or questions about the school. If you do not know your representatives here is a list:

University of Maryland, Eastern Shore:

Ken Brewer (also your student council president!)

Julie Priddy

University of Maryland, College Park:

Zoha Khan (Me 😀 )

Sadia Tariq

UMBC:

Marina Bronstein

Samuel Dussey

University of Maryland, University College:

Alexander Stone (Sasha)

University of Baltimore:

Gloria Babukiika

Daphne Compere

University of Maryland, Baltimore:

Monica Tong

Jessica Nacion

Obviously, there are gaps in the council. We still need representatives for Towson (2), Salisbury (2), and UMUC (1).  If you are in any of these institutes at USG and are interested in becoming a representative, just go onto the Student Council page on connect and turn in an application! We need you guys immediately!

What’s great about talking to your student council representatives is that we work hard to find solutions for concerns and have been very successful in the past- from extending library hours for finals to getting extra microwaves. So if you have any concerns or suggestions, let your representatives know.

Something exciting about the council for next year is that we will finally be electing representatives for each institute. Finally the students will be able to vote and choose their own representatives. If you have anyone in mind that could potentially be a great representative let your institute’s representatives know!

Now, why should you run for student council? 1) you have the power to make positive and impacting changes to this campus, 2) you get to network with and meet a lot of people, 3) you get to be really involved with all the major events on campus.

Some Student Council members tabling at USG fest that was held at the beginning of the school year. Hope you can recognize  at least some of them!
