Student-at-Large (16 seats available)
Why have you decided to run for this position?
“I have chosen to run for students at large for the reason that I want to represent all the students at Brock. Simply, I want to address issues that are not targeted to one specific faculty. It comes across with varying viewpoints. I want to take everything into consideration, and ensure everyone’s needs are being met.”
Why do you believe you should be elected as a student-at-large?
“I should be elected because I have great communication skills and this way I’d be able to communicate with a variety of students. I want to create change and inspire change. Students are busy and they may not be aware of things going on with BUSU. I want to inspire them to search on their own, ask questions and understand more about Brock and BUSU as a whole. But before this can occur, I want to bring to their attention issues that will be affecting them, and ensure they know the situations affecting them. Once they become more involved, it will be a matter of time before they actively ensure they of the changes occurring at Brock.”
How do you plan to represent the full diversity of students and programs on campus?
“The best way I could plan to communicate with students is through social media like Facebook and Twitter. I’ll create my own Facebook page and I would also create my own web page that illustrates what I’m about and what I’m trying to do. I’d also try to get permission at the beginning of my term to do some tabelling and promote my position to communicate with the diverse student population at Brock. Furthermore, I will encourage word of mouth and try to raise awareness to students about upcoming situations.”
To the best of your knowledge, what is BUSAC and what does it do?
“To my knowledge, BUSAC is an organization within Brock that goes over financial and other problems that students address. These problems could be with club activities (how much to fund clubs to run their operations), food prices and other concerns that students may have at Brock. It is up to BUSAC to take into account the values of students and approve policies that will best suit them.”
