Class of 2014 Senate Elections
Hi Class of 2014!! My name is Emily [Trap]ani and I would love to have the honor of being your Class Senator. I grew up in Syracuse, NY and held many leadership position throughout my high school career including School Council Senator, Senior Class President, and Captain of the Varsity Basketball Team two years in a row. At Rochester I have been involved with the Varsity Women’s Basketball team, numerous clubs, and have held leadership positions in the Sigma Delta Tau sorority. I have interned on Capitol Hill, and know the ins and outs of the legislative process. I have met and interacted with students from many different interest backgrounds and believe that I have the qualities to excel as your Class Senator. I would make myself readily available and approachable to anyone and everyone who has something to say. I will put calculated and careful thought into each decision the Senate makes, with the student body in mind. We have one year as undergrads left, and the work never ends, but college does, so let’s live it up. Vote for me and I’ll do my absolute best to make sure you have the greatest Senior Year experience the Senate has to offer. 'Trap's Got Your Back'
Class of 2014, it has been an honor to serve me peers constituents for the past two years in the Students Association. Not only do I bring a spunky sassy attitude to senate, but I also make sure that your voice and opinions are heard,We are going to see a lot of changed next year as a person who has experience and knowledge about campus life and student government, I want to continue informing the student body about these changes and assuring that you voice and concerns are heard. I love representing the class of 2104, and with me as your elected senator, senior year can only get hawter and better! So vote Henry for 2014 Senate!
Hi Class of 2014! My name is Jessica Bendes and I am running to represent you as a Class of 2014 Senator. This past year I have served as the Deputy Speaker of the Senate, working to ensure the transparency of your student government and advising your Senators on their initiatives. I hope to continue these projects in the coming year in addition to improving the relationship between the SA and the student body. I have the drive, dedication, and determination to represent you to the best of my abilities while simultaneously working with Administrators and other students to make positive changes to this campus. Thank you so much for your support! Vote Jessica Bendes!
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.
