A Word from Your Senior Class President

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

The Senior Class President position is a position in USG that I have found to be one of the most rewarding. In my fourth year here at NYU and in USG I have taken what I have learned and applied it to creating a cohesion between the class presidents. As Senior Class President I have completed all my duties that are required of me (i.e. running elections and having one program a month.) But I have also used my previous experience to try and have the class presidents work together as a group.

As the Senior Class President not only does your constituency look up to you to do do programs and try and represent their ideals and beliefs, but the younger class presidents look up to you to make an example and as a sort of guide. So what I will say to those thinking about applying for Senior Class President is that you should be a person who doesn't mind getting asked questions about things happening in USG or about process that people go through (you are going to get a lot of questions when it comes time for elections) and you should be a person who is willing and able to work well with others. This is not a position where you work by yourself, there is a lot of time you will be required to collaborate with people and that is something to keep in mind.

Being Senior Class President was one of the best decisions that I ever made and wouldn't change it for the world. I'm so happy to have been a part of USG for the past four years and look forward to seeing how USG continues when I leave!!
