Undergraduate Senate confirms three positions
The Undergraduate Senate confirmed the appointments of two new senators and a new deputy director of design for the Student Government on Sunday.
Sarah Weinstein, a freshman in the School of International Studies, filled the vacant Class of 2010 seat, and Adrian Ghisoiu, a senior in the School of Public Affairs, filled the vacant Class of 2007 seat. The new senators said student involvement is an important issue they would like to work on for this term.
Ghisoiu said he would like to figure out a way to communicate with students living off-campus regarding on-campus events.
Weinstein said she would like to “help motivate students” and would focus on academics within her capacity in the Senate.
Brittany Boyd, a senior in the School of Communication, was appointed deputy director of design, where she will help with publicity for Student Government events, including designing posters and ads for publication.
The next meeting of the Undergraduate Senate, open to the public, will be next Sunday at 2:30 in Kogod 118.
