Jonathan Lotempio Jr.
Candidate for Class of 2014 Senate
I have served as your Senator-at-Large this year and hope to do so again.
I hope that, with your vote, we can work to ameliorate Rochester's curriculum in a novel way. Long term, I have started work on something that I call the Inspiration Seminar. This is a 2-Credit, 1.5 hour per week elective class designed to be taught by faculty and friends of faculty in academia, industry, business, government, and policy in their respective fields. This is a novel form of experiential learning and I believe that it can help to re-ignite your passion after you have taken introductory classes.
Short term, I aim to have professors include their background, lifes' path, and previous careers in syllabus day. This is something that could be added as early as next semester.
This is a more serious platform than I have classically given - note my class council platform. This should convey how serious and excited I am to work on this project in the upcoming year.
Candidate for Class of 2014 Council
Rising senior is a word that I would have never thought could apply to my friends and I so quickly. My platform is straightforward - I want to help make this the best last year of college possible.
I served the past year as your Class Secretary. I look forward to, with your votes, serving again as a senior officer. I understand and look forward to the time commitment.
Trust me - there is no one that is better suited to plan a wine tour or senior night.
Happy senior year,
