My name is Angie Vis, and I am an English and Philosophy and Intellectual History major from Campbellsport, WI and your Student Senate President for the 2012-13 academic year. As a freshman, I was not very engaged in the college experience. I would go to class and then go home. With the aid of some awesome professors and friends I began to become involved in the Marian University community. Becoming involved is more than just attending class and going to the occasional event on campus. It is challenging yourself to care about what is going on at Marian and being a part of something larger than yourself. As a freshman, I would have never thought that I would be the Student Senate President writing this letter to my fellow students, but with encouragement from friends, faculty and staff members here at Marian, I have challenged and raised my personal expectations and grown into a leader on campus. The Student Senate Executive Board hopes that we can make it easier for students to become involved on campus. When we will run into you at Common Grounds, in the newly renovated HSC or in the breezeway between classes and let us know how your experience at Marian is going. Keep an eye out for the Executive Board members as they are there to hear your concerns and help make your experience and Marian more fulfilling. This year Jessica Sommerfelt, an Education major, is Vice President; Elizabeth Herman, a Math and Music major, is Treasurer; Kristin Meise, a Chemistry and Biology major, is Secretary; Bryce Woldt, a Criminal Justice major, is Parliamentarian; and Prince Herdle, a Communications major, is the Public Relations intern. These five students and I are your direct link to Student Senate. The Executive Board have various goals for this year. Our first goal is to maintain the importance of the student voice on campus. In order to do this the Executive Board, and the Senators, will be sure to provide quality input to the faculty, staff, and administration regarding ideas and decisions which affect the student body. Secondly, we want to encourage students to attend student organization events. Attending events held by organizations allows you to meet new people and develop your own personal interests. Ultimately, the overall goal of Student Senate is to successfully obtain the student point of view, implement positive change based on those views, and ensure that those changes are heard and maintained. In order to implement our goals, the Student Senate Executive Board encourages students to become invested in their education and experience at Marian University. We hope that students will be willing to communicate their ideas for change to the Student Senate by sharing ideas. We truly hope that students will not be idle but rather active and involved during their time here at Marian. If you would like to be an active and involved student, I encourage you to stop by a Student Senate meeting, join a Student Organization, seek out a member of the Student Senate Executive Board, share your ideas, and develop your capacity for being a catalyst for positive social change. In the words of Cesar Chavez, "have initiative...learn to think and act for [yourself]--and be free." Make this the year that you cultivate your leadership abilities and create positive, lasting change on this campus.
