What is your position?

What emotions did you feel when you found out you won the election?
Winning an election is hard work. You’re in the hall standing and talking about your platform for over 120 hours! You are questioned, criticized, complimented, slighted, approached and some of the time, ignored completely! It takes a lot of willpower just to get through the elections process, so after this past election, I was a lot of things! For one, I was proud of myself and the campaign team. I was happy and excited, but also humbled by the sheer number of students who came out to vote! Thanks Brock, I promise not to let you down!

My major was BA Political Science. Graduated on June 13th, 2013!!!!

Do you have any advice for students that want to run in the elections?
Yes. Do it. Running for a BUSU position was one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. If you are successful, BUSU is a phenomenal place… probably because of the people who work here. It’s a life changing experience. Sounds corny… but it’s true.
