Claire Shaw: “I’m a senior Biology major (Pre-Vet) and my motivation for being on BORSC is rooted in bringing more awareness to the student body about what exactly this committee does. I have prior experience working with student organizations in SGA.”

 

Claire Wu: “Hi ! I am a junior pre-vet math major. I am from Hood River, Oregon. I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and have been in the States since I was 13. I am passionate about representing anyone who wishes to have a voice as an ole. Besides my love for math and animals, I enjoy running and looking for good napping spots on campus. Excited to meet you all next fall!”

 

Guadalupe: “I am a senior majoring in Political Science, Japanese, and Asian Studies with concentrations in International Relations and Race/Ethnic Studies. Being a proud south side Chicagoan from the West Englewood neighborhood, my devotion to my community enabled me to take on leadership roles concerning social justice. In high school, I was on the student advisory committee for Janis Jackson, the CEO of Chicago Public Schools, where we developed, and implemented initiatives aimed at improving education inequality. I continued my passion for community organizing and uplifting marginalised student voices at St Olaf by taking active roles in the Political Awareness Committee and Student Senate, to name a few. I hope to bring these experiences to her work on BORSC, as a new cultivation of her passion. Outside of school and advocacy, my hobbies include reading, learning languages, and strength training.”

 

Logan: “Hello! I’m a sophomore double majoring in philosophy and economics. I’m very excited to spend my second year on BoRSC, and I’m ready to advocate for policy that makes St. Olaf a place where everyone can feel at home, especially in these turbulent times. I love poetry, music, board games, and getting to spend time with interesting strangers. Have a nice day!“

 

Rayan: “Hi! I’m a first year student from Boulder County, Colorado. I’m on the track and field team and planning on majoring in psychology. I hope to make an impact on campus with my platforms, so if you ever see me around, feel free to tell me any thoughts you may be having about that.”
