Videos: The top issues for student leaders this SA election cycle

Mollie Bowman
Junior
Panhellenic Association president
“I really found out last semester and the semester before that this campus seemed rampant with sexual assaults to me, and we’ve all seen the survey data. And I think student leaders have really come together to unite with this issue in mind…”

 

Harrison Grauso
Freshman
Thurston Hall Council president
“Since the University mandated that students are required to live on campus for three years, it has created a huge financial burden for a lot of students, and so far there hasn’t been any solution offered to those who can’t handle that additional financial commitment.”

 

Kirsten Dimovitz
Sophomore
Students Against Sexual Assault co-president
“We’re looking for things that are expansive, and for people who are willing to continue working with us and the different offices at GW to make sure that we’re coming up with creative ways to prevent this and to create a safer community on campus.”

 

Jennifer Bryan
Freshman
Black Student Union freshman representative
“We do have a diverse candidate pool, and maybe some members from different backgrounds and multicultural organizations and communities in GW will be elected, and some of those voices can be heard in places sometimes they aren’t necessarily heard as often.”

 

Tim Stackhouse
Junior
Interfraternity Council president
“One of the things that we’re really focusing on is making sure that the people who step into the new roles of president and vice president not only have their own agendas, but are completing what has been started by other people in the past.”

 

Dylan Williams
Freshman
Colonial Cabinet member for 2015
“Along with proposed peer-support networks as well as new services offered in the Colonial Health Center, I think that the Student Association needs to work really well with the University to help build those programs up so they don’t fall flat but are able to flourish and really, really support the school.”

 

Rob Todaro
Junior
Allied in Pride president, former Hatchet writer
“The most important issue for me in this SA election is implementing educational trainings for students.”
