Student Association Is Ready to Serve

 

Trinity’s Student Association team for the 2016 – 2017 academic year is focused on taking action and encouraging positive change on campus through communication and involvement within the student body.

The executives this year defined Student Association as students serving students. While a simple concept, this embodies a deep desire to transform Trinity’s campus for the better of the students, staff, faculty, and the community as a whole.

Student Association president Jordan Ghiglia ’17, is determined to address practical and meaningful change, “We have been working on emphasizing that ‘service’ part much more this year than in years past. I think that anyone who sees an issue on campus but does nothing to be a part of the process to fix that issue is not only robbing the community, but robbing themselves of the experience of helping others.”

This year, the team is already delegating committees to assist in organizing events like the annual Community Dodgeball Tournament, Fall Fest, and OPUS. The student representation in these activities demonstrates SA’s hope to become a stronger presence on campus.

There are also meetings regarding department curriculum, foundations courses, and other academically focused discussions that the representatives have joined to increase the value of students’ voices, concerns, and opinions. Vice President of Administration Liz Boss ’18 says she looks forward to the association making a larger presence on campus than previous years.

“I’m really looking forward to Student Association this year and the impact we can have on campus through various conversations, events, and objectives,” said Junior Representative Casey Huisenga ’18. “As the student body, we have the largest and most important voices on campus that desire to be heard.”
