Class of 2016 Council Elections
VOTE ALEX DWULIT!! Hey all, I'm Alex and it's that exciting time of year when we pick our class council again!! So much has happened since our initiation that sunny summer day, but since then, it has been my pleasure interacting with many of you and getting to know you as passionate, fun-loving, and enthusiastic members of the best class on campus, our Class of 2016! As a current member of our class council, I can honestly say that serving on the council has been one of the highlights of my freshman year. Creativity and initiative are vital components of serving on class council, and as a girl who likes to venture outside of where most are comfortable going, I can most certainly bring adventure into our already exciting lives through the various activities the council plans! If you re-elect me for class council, I will make sure that we glide through all our stresses by having events where we can relax (like the Cheesecake and Massage Day!), dance with our friends (Sadie Hawkins Dance!) or get free food (Hot Cocoa Day during Spirit Week!). I'm grateful to be part of such a wonderful class of individuals, and I can assure you that if you re-elect me we will face another successful year for the council, class, and campus, so VOTE ALEX!!
As an active member of Class Council 2016, we strive to make every moment of freshman year as memorable as possible. Everything we do, we have your best interest in mind and we want to continue this rich tradition over the next several years. It has been a pleasure and an enjoyable experience serving you all on the 2016 Class Council and I hope to continue representing you in the years to come. Thank you!
Class of 2016, I would like to be your guide to an incredible sophomore year. You may know me from events such as the Pie-Your-RA food drive, and other SBA Hall Council events, where I have been very involved, and have been able to brainstorm with my fellow members great ideas for events, such as a slip-and-slide or waterfight during the few warm days we have, and life-sized game of Life. Because of my experience there, I believe I am ready to serve the students as a member of Class Council. Now, I’m not egotistical enough to say that I am the best leader in our class, but after writing several bylaws and constitutions for clubs, gaining my Eagle Scout award, and learning how to lead in multiple different roles, I can confidently say that I am in the top 8. Since we elect 8 members of Class Council, that should mean I have your vote. But why should you believe me? Well in the next few weeks (or past few weeks) I will be going around and talking to everyone, seeing what you want in Class Council, and making up a list that will become my job to see carried out. If you would like to add to this list, or contact me, please email me at CMcCorm8@u.rochester.edu
Class of 2016; this year has been a whirlwind of making memories and taking chances. We entered the U of R community knowing very little about the place we would be calling home for the next four years. But now most of us have learned how to successfully navigate the tunnels, that one does not simply leave their laundry in the dryer for hours, and that nothing beats a Saturday D-fo brunch. I like to think that we learned all of these nuggets of knowledge from taking risks. I personally took the risk of becoming a hall council representative. As a hall rep I distributed over 300 free wings, brought therapy dogs to Goergen, and sponsored a chocolate fountain study-break. The most rewarding part of planning these events was seeing my fellow residents come together to enjoy themselves. I believe that fun, gimmick-free programming is the best way to generate unity amongst our class. As your class council representative I promise to plan more creative, memorable programs. I want us to stand out! I want to bring us together to be remembered as one, unified and proud class. I am taking one final risk in my freshmen year by running for a position, I hope that you will take a risk and elect me for your class council.
Hey Class of 2016! When looking back, I am honored for all the special people I have met as Freshman year comes to a close. I only look forward for the many I am going to meet in the coming years. We really are a pretty damn great class! Ok, now on to the platform . . . I worked really hard this year on Class Council, and hope to do the same again for you in the coming years. I am very approachable, and would like to continue to be your voice on campus. Little bit about me, I like dogs, art, music, and basketball. Pretty simple. Thank you for all the support that has put me where I am today. Let's make it another great year.
What a year it has been! Look at all the friends we’ve made, good times we’ve had, and, yes, things we’ve learned. I’ve had a great time this year in Rochester and I ask you to place me on Class Council so that I can make our sophomore year even better than our freshman one. Everybody who knows me (and if you don’t, please get to know me) knows that I am fun-loving, exceptionally energetic, and surprisingly responsible. Serving as a representative and committee chair this past year on Sue B. Hall Council improved my abilities to work with others and taught me more about planning events. One thing that I love about UR is that I’ve been able to explore so many of my interests, and our social programming should reflect the diverse interests of our student body. We should plan events that Bio. majors and English majors will enjoy, that Comp-Sci. majors and Poli-Sci. majors will love to death, and that Business majors and Art majors will never stop talking about even after graduation. That’s exactly what I plan to do if elected as your representative. So vote for this New England native to be on your sophomore Class Council.
As the biggest and best class of all, we have a duty to show the University of Rochester the proper way of uniting students throughout campus! In the four years we have at Rochester it is our duty to have some very important campus-wide conversations, ones that will test the limits of our growth and maturity over time. We will learn from each other in our time here. At the same time that each of us is learning, however, we will also teach others to the best of our ability. Efficiency in our council will take us to new intellectual heights. These are places at which we will be certainly challenged, but through the council’s leadership we will prevail and surpass our limits. Please, remember that you are voting for someone on whom you are relying to give you information on both the class of 2016 and campus buzz. My experience as Class President in High School and Social Chair in the 2016 Class Council has provided me with some practical knowledge that includes both organizing programs and ensuring that the class is fairly represented and that its needs as a whole are met. Expressing the ideals of one’s constituents is, in my opinion, an incredibly important skill for a leader to exhibit. It is also one that I am both practiced in and ready
Hello again Class of Twenty-Sixteen! My name is Elisabeth Watson, and as a current Class Council member I am eager to continue to serve you in the 2013-2014 academic year. This year the Class Council has brought so much spirit to campus! As a returning member to the council, I can bring my insights from this year to continue to plan successful events. I am involved in a variety of activities including, athletics, working on campus, and environmental sustainability, which will allow me to be accessible to everyone to help forward your thoughts and ideas to the council. Vote for me, ELISABETH WATSON, and I will work towards making your sophomore year as fun and relaxing as possible! Carpe Diem and Meliora!
Dear Class of 2016,
I had an amazing 2011-2012 and didn't think that anything could best it, then I came to the University of Rochester. This year has been an amazing experience and I'm thrilled to have gotten to know so many of the people in our class. From Massages to Spirit Week, it has been an honor to provide programming which makes your interesting and busy lives less stressful. I would be honored if you would vote for me so that I may continue to be a part of this fun process. Feel free to contact me with any concerns or ideas involving programming, or even wave to me if you see me walking through campus. More so, tell your friends to vote as well and hold those they vote for accountable! Here's to a sophomore year that's even better than freshman year! Meliora.
Why hello there beautiful people!! Almost one whole year down and 3 to go! Wooohoo!! This year was awesome, and I want next year to be even better! The "Sophomore Slump" cannot and will not happen to us if I have anything to do with it! I love being involved on campus because it allows me to make connections with so many of you amazing, brilliant, fun people! You may have seen me around giving out free food with SBA Hall Council, putting on service opportunities with the Newman Community, cheering on our sports teams with my quads in the Pep Band, or scoring goals and spiking balls on our intramural teams, but I would love nothing more than if you saw me putting on an event for the Class of 2016, and an event that you loved and had a say in! Maybe you want clowns, water balloons, and of course free food, don't worry, I will do my best to make it happen for you! I want to be a voice for your thoughts, ideas, and opinions, so vote KELSEY TUTTLE for the 2016 Class Council, and you will have a wonderful and memorable Sophomore year (no slump what so ever)!!
Hello, class of 2016! My name is Lianna Mendelson and I would be honored to serve on your Class Council. I can’t believe how quickly our first year of college has flown by, or how strong the friendships I’ve forged here have become in such a short time. I want to make everyone’s lives a little brighter by planning programs that contribute to a positive environment on campus. We all work so hard, and we deserve breaks, like trips to concerts at Eastman or our local amusement park, SeaBreeze. As a Rochester native, I’m familiar with many of the things our wonderful city has to offer, and I want to help you experience them, too. As Vice President of Programming for the largest Hall Council, Sue B, I’ve learned how to throw the programs you want, but if there’s anything you think I’m missing, just let me know. I’ve learned that everyone always wants free food, but we also need to create lasting memories. I’m enthusiastic, hardworking, and approachable, and I know that together we can create a year of meaningful programs and fun times! Vote Lianna for Class Council 2016!!
HEY Class of 2016! It was my honor to serve everyone this past academic year, and I would love to come back and make it another SPECTACULAR year for us all!! One thing that brought me back to elections was due to the immense opportunities that being active on campus gave me. Which is why I want my peers to be able to be involved on campus whether it is a social event hosted by Class Council, or a scholarship event to widen the mental horizon of each bright young individual. In addition to gaining new experiences and new friends on my way through all the events such as Spirit Week, I learned in depth-communication skills by interacting with fellow classmates, administration, and leaders all across different organizations on campus, as do I also love to plan events that excite people up and bring spirit to this amazing school. I am a neuroscience major with a cluster in Ancient Greek. I am the co-founder and co-president of Japanese Students Association (which was formed this year!), and a part of Rice Crew. We made it through freshman year! Let's make next year a better one, so VOTE for me, MIKAKO HARATA as your INCUMBANT Class Council member of 2016!
What’s up Class of 2016?? My name is Shakti Rambarran and I would love to be one of your picks for Class Council rep! I remember the night before I left Jamaica to come here, I was so incredibly nervous –nervous that I wouldn’t adjust well or find a solid group of friends like my ones back home. Luckily, from the beginning, I was able to meet some of the weirdest, funniest and craziest people I know! To make it better, class council events, especially all those during spirit week, helped to bring together our year and gave me opportunities to strengthen those relationships. Now I know I want to be a part of the council that makes the social aspects so fun! I want to help work on class programs that YOU want to see! – Want them to involve Dorito tacos? Awesome. Let’s make it happen! Drawing from my experiences from serving as SA’s Projects & Services Facilities Aide and a GlobeMed Staff Member (if you don’t know about it – look it up!), I can bring ideas for programs or events that will surely be out of the box! (Ever wondered how a president, egg, straw and paper can go together? Stop me around campus & ask me!) I’m not afraid to work hard so WE can party even harder ;)
Since Class Council is all about having a great time, I won't bore you with a long and meaningless platform. My name is Sam Silber and I hope to bring my passion, creativity, and leadership experience to the table next year to make sure our class has the best time possible. In terms of past experience, I am currently involved with multiple organizations on campus such as SA and WRUR, and in my spare time enjoy selling exotic rugs and carpets in the bazaars of Armenia . I like to think that ending with quotes that have nothing to do with what is previously said is an effective way of making people think you are intelligent because they think there is probably some sort of deep metaphor hidden within, so I am going to do just that. Peace out, 2016.
'You love your children. It's your one redeeming quality - that and your cheekbones.'- Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thones
Friends, Romans, countrymen, class of 2016, lend me your ears.
I adored serving on Class Council during our first year together and would be honored by the opportunity to serve you all again this coming year.
I believe my passion for graphic design and videography has served class council well in promoting our events and initiatives. Additionally, I have past leadership experience in high school student government, as an eagle scout, an Eco-rep, as leads in theater productions, and by participating in several other leadership platforms.
Most of all, I want to continue to be a part of seeing our collective inspirations and passions culminate into something we can be proud of.
Two roads diverge in a yellow wood; let’s take the one where we have a great time.
Class of 2016, can you believe that your first year of college is almost over? It seems like yesterday that we all met each other for the very first time, and yet here we are now, close the end of the school year. My name is Zachary Jenkins, and I have decided to run for class council for the next year. Even though this year was already an exciting year, I hope to serve the council and do great things for our class. Despite the stresses of sophomore year, I believe that this upcoming year can be incredible. I aim to put on some fun programs that benefit everyone, because who doesn't love free stuff? It would be an honor to serve class council and make the Class of 2016 known to the rest of the school. Vote for Zachary Jenkins for a year that you will never forget!
