Student-at-Large (16 seats available)
Why have you decided to run for this position?
“I am currently a Social Sciences councillor on BUSAC and have decided to go for a second term. I wanted to be a student-at-large because I’d rather talk to all students rather than just my faculty. As much as I love my faculty, I’m more inclined to an at-large position. I have the experience talking to students and I hear all the changes that they want to do. I would rather represent all students than just a select few.”
Why do you believe you should be elected as a student-at-large?
“Being in my third year, I’ve had three years of experience working in student government, and especially this year working for BUSU and being on BUSAC. I’ve made connections with people that will help push policy items and I have the general know-how of how BUSU works, of the organizational structure, and what I can realistically get done as a student on campus. I have the experience, motivation and confidence.”
How do you plan to represent the full diversity of students and programs on campus?
“I’m in constant contact with students from all faculties, and I don’t really pinpoint students as being from one faculty or another. I would rather talk to students as a whole, and represent students as a whole body rather than faculty-based representation. Being oblivious to which program or faculty a student belongs to, keeps me unbiased when it comes to making decisions for them.”
To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?
“BUSAC keeps the executives accountable for the policy, business and daily operations of the students’ union. We also debate on issues such as student funding, club funding, policy changes and if items should go to referendum.”
