With Student Government Association (SGA) elections coming up, we would love if you could take a few minutes to read about why you should vote for us as your Junior Class Presidents for the fall of 2012.
As your current sophomore class presidents, we’ve worked with our class council to bring our class events like class dinners, brunch with six strangers and study breaks (pie!). Our favorite event we got to plan this year was Spontaneous Fun Day: from cotton candy vendors to spray paint hats, it was a day where the Colby community really came together for some much-needed fun. We’ve been really happy with the success of these events and look forward to planning more like them in the future. Aside from programming, we have four very specific goals for next year that we’re really interested in pursuing:
Plan a junior class mixer so members of our class can continue getting to know new faces and reconnect with old ones.
Establish a stronger connection between the international population at Colby and domestic students. Starting this year, we’re hoping to help plan and host the Colby Olympics in order to begin to build such a bridge.
Save energy on this campus. With the help of EnviroCo, we have two goals: in the short term, we hope to get signs on every single light switch on campus to say “turn me off,” essentially. In the long run, we hope to work toward the elimination of bottled water on our campus altogether. We feel these two simple and environmentally friendly goals to be quite attainable and would love to see them carried out.
Research the benefits of the course offered during this past JanPlan, “Multicultural Literacy,” and explore its potential as a requirement for all Colby students, or at least as an opportunity during fall and spring semesters. We see the open discussion of race, sexuality and social class as a means through which our campus can become more intellectually diverse and aware.
Although we have listed out these goals we’d like to achieve if reelected, we are always open to feedback and concerns of any matter. We really believe that there can be no steps toward the betterment of our community without your input.
It has been an honor and privilege serving as your SGA representatives this past year and would be so genuinely grateful for the chance to represent you once again in the fall of 2012.
Thanks for taking the time to learn about us. We would really appreciate your vote on March 12-14. Should you have any questions, concerns, qualms, happies, want-to-talks, anything, do not hesitate to contact us!
