To the Class of 2014,
We, Kelly Ling and Elliot Marsing, are running for spring 2014 class presidents because we love our Colby community. Above all, we want to see it grow and prosper in a sizeable manner. We want to enact change that will actually happen, rather than simply setting lofty goals and ideas. First and foremost, we want to foster an all-inclusive community. We want to bring small positive changes that will make a big difference. Through working with a number of student organizations on campus, we will bring light to various issues that students face, and we will solve them together. We will also seek to improve student club coordination to create events that everyone will enjoy. We vow to seek out your opinions and ideas to help build a Colby community that we can all benefit from.
Your years spent at Colby should be some of the most wonderful and memorable of your life. To ensure that this happens, we want to bridge the gaps between clubs and organizations by holistically encouraging collaboration and teamwork on events. We are, as a class, an extraordinary and amazing group of people. We deserve to celebrate ourselves. We should be celebrating our accomplishments, our goals and our hopes. More importantly, though, we know that our feats should be shared and celebrated with those around us. As junior class presidents, we will strive to foster connectivity and camaraderie in this way, thus furthering our sense of community.
Specifically, we would like to work with clubs such as Enviro-Co to bridge the gap between students and the administration on environmental issues and student interest matters. For example, we will work with Enviro-Co to remove all bottled water on campus and place “turn me off” signs above all light switches. We would also like to coordinate with the up-and-coming Gender and Sexual Diversity Resource Program to create and distribute updated contact lists of administrators and counselors for students who need them.
Furthermore, we are both talented event planners, and would do a great job of putting on class events that everyone can enjoy. Some of these events will include tailgates, registered parties, spontaneous events and the greatest study breaks of your lives, to name a few. We would love suggestions and feedback and promise to take them in whole-heartedly. We, Kelly Ling and Elliot Marsing are here to serve you, Colby College Class of 2014, and we would love to be your presidents for the spring of 2013.
With love as pure as the freshly fallen snow, Kelly Ling and Elliot Marsing
