Please provide in one to two paragraphs an issue that you think should be changed or improved on cam
One major aspect I believe should be improved at UNO is student involvement on campus. Many of the individuals I speak to wish to become more involved but do not know where to begin or are even afraid to. I think by advertising organizations more and spreading enthusiasm for socializing with peers would improve overall satisfaction with UNO and influence desire to make the campus a better place. I believe there should be more involvement fairs and more opportunities for newcomers to enter organizations during the year as they wish to become more involved. Student involvement is a huge part of the college experience, and if students are encouraged to participate more in depth, they would be happier and more prepared for life after college.
Please describe in one to two paragraphs what makes you qualified to sit on Student Government.
I believe to be successful in student government one must genuinely care about helping the students of UNO. A lot of times individuals will simply join something to include it on their resume. However, being a senator is a huge time commitment with many responsibilities. I am prepared and willing to put in as much time necessary to ensure projects are done thoroughly. Being a psychology major, I have an intrinsic passion for helping others. Being a senator is about representing the students, and if I become a senator, I will put in a lot of effort to talk to different students about what they believe needs improved and how they feel about certain ideas proposed in Senate. I have had a taste of what being a Senator is like through the Freshman Leadership Council, a branch of student government. I have enjoyed working with my peers and generating ideas for projects to improve campus. If the students elect me as a Senator, I will put in all of my effort in guaranteeing I do my job to the best of my abilities.
