I think there are many ways to improve campus life. If you choose me to represent you, I’d want to:
-make the deans more accessible through regular office hours and a published list of whom to contact in specific situations
-set up late night dining to make food available on campus after 11:00pm.
-create a campus mini-grocery store where we could buy cooking supplies and toothpaste with meal plan points.
-revamp Tarble into more of a campus center, with nice common spaces and a series of weekend programs that are alternatives to parties.
-reopen the discussion of a Blue Light System.
-do a “lighting tour” of the campus with Public Safety to identify what areas need more light and install new lamps.
-help expand the Green Advisor program and institute orientation workshops to teach about compact fluorescents and what number plastics we can recycle.
-advocate for Swarthmore to purchase more wind power and replace old washers with energy efficient frontloading machines that won’t shred our clothing.
Now you know what I want to do, I’d like to tell you about myself. I’m studying psychology, Greek, and linguistics, I guide tours, tech at LPAC, and vote on the Cooper Committee. When I decide to do something, I make it happen. Just this year I’ve created a Rosh Chodesh Group (through Ruach) and an Equestrian Club to start riding next year.
More importantly, I will listen to you. The point of this position is to get you what you need, so I commit to asking you your opinions and representing them fully. Thanks for your time!
