CBA is represented by three student senators. They work hard to identify the needs of our student body and make changes at the university. Get to know one of our senators below.

Nigeena Rahmanzai, from Gretna, Nebraska, is a junior studying economics. Though she stays busy with Student Government, she is also part of the Women's Resource Center, Chi Omega, and the Collegiate Panhellenic Council. If that didn't keep her busy enough, she also works as an investment services intern at TD Ameritrade.
What are some of the projects you are pursuing in our Student Government?
One of the projects that I am taking on for the Academic Excellence Committee is creating a more open and welcoming environment among our peers. We are posting signage in different parts of the library and student center that will nonverbally communicate that students are OK with other students sitting by them and starting a conversation. Often, one student will take up a table intended for four students to use, and if it was communicated that the extra space could be shared, this would welcome collaboration.
What is your favorite part about being part of Student Government?
I enjoy looking over the resolutions that senators come up with. It is always so rewarding when I see all the hard work that my fellow senators put in being accomplished and making a difference.
What is your favorite thing about UNO?
I love how diverse this university is. There is a lot that you can learn simply from listening to the stories your peers tell you. With all the different backgrounds of UNO students, there is never a shortage of different perspectives and insights on many topics.
What is your favorite thing about CBA?
I enjoy the abundance of opportunities for success and professional growth. The staff at CBA is remarkable, from the advisors to the administration and everyone in between. I have never been more thankful to be surrounded by so many individuals who genuinely care about my success and my future.
