Dear Fellow Students:
My name is Omari Scott ’12 and I am running for Campus Life Representative. The thought of a freshman running for this position might sound a little scary for some of you, but I assure you, you need not be afraid. As a freshman, I bring a new and fresh perspective to the Swarthmore community.
I understand the importance of communication, meeting deadlines, and working as part of a team, as I have served in various leadership positions in high school, and currently serve as a the Civic and Political Action Coordinator for SASS. I am also a very good listener, which is a vital characteristic for this position. I am already a reachable person, but will be even more so as Campus Life Representative to ensure your satisfaction.
One of the major issues I have heard discussed over the past few months is the inefficiency of the driers in the dorm laundry rooms. I believe that this is something that needs to be brought to the attention of the administration because our continuous use of these inefficient machines is a detriment to the environment. While I support Earthlust’s campaign for students to use drying racks, I also think it is necessary that we begin to invest in better drying machines. This is one of the many concerns I know students in the community face, and I am running for Campus Life Representative because I want to serve as a voice for you.
I only have one promise for you, and that is I will work tirelessly with the other Campus Life Representative, Student Council members, and appropriate members of the administration to make sure your concerns as a member of this community are heard and addressed.
