Active Engagement, Inclusion, and Leadership

  • SGA Presence and Transparency:
  • Improve connection between SGA and students. Through campus-wide engagements from the SGA branches / Senate and consistent communication from the Pres and VP we believe SGA will become more accessible and commonly known among all students.
  • Establish better connection between SGA and administration. We believe college is an institution of higher knowledge, St. Olaf is upheld first and foremost by students. We strive to increase transparency of decisions made from the PLT and Faculty in regards to its effects on us as those directly affected.
  • Foster cohesion of SGA within itself. With nine branches and a Senate, clear communication and cohesion within SGA can be difficult, so this campaign seeks to make SGA more unified. By making SGA more unified, it will be more responsive and active in order to do the following:
  • Dismantle the antiquated systems at St. Olaf that perpetuate and uphold racism.
  • Examination and evaluation of the existing systems within SGAA to discover the impact among different minorities across the student body in order to better redistribute justice and equity
  • Strive to make intentional and thoughtful actions through SGA in representation, programming, and funding
  • Continue serve as a strong space for both speaking and listening to student’s voices
  • Reinvigorate Senate and its Initiatives:
  • STAR (SGA Taskforce Against Racism), It’s On Us, Greater Than, and the Textbook Initiatives all have the foundations in place to foster change and dialogue on campus -- it is time to restructure all four to have more presence, promotion, and engagement on campus with students and staff
  • Transparency and intentionality in SGA Senate
  • Encourage and advocate for stronger relations between the class and special purpose senators with their constituents
  • Marketing focused education campaign on Senate
  • Leadership Development at St. Olaf and Beyond:
  • The Office of Student Activities, along with other offices, hold valuable resources in developing leadership skills for Oles, we want to make this more accessible and active in the following ways:
  • Host Leadership Development Days each semester for all students
  • Mobilize St. Olaf to join national conversations and become an example and model for other institutions to follow
  • Join the American Student Government Association (ASGA)
  • Engage Carleton and other MIAC schools to compare SGA models and relationships with school administrations
  • Collaboration with Olaf Centers and Offices:
  • St. Olaf has so many resources it can be overwhelming. How can SGA engage with one or all of these resources in collaboration or conversation about how they support the student experience? We will strive to make all areas and resources provided by campus readily and easily available to all students. Some of the establishments we hope to coordinate actively with include:
  • Taylor Center for Equity and Inclusion
  • Wellness Center
  • Center for Advising and Academic Support (CAAS)
  • Piper Center for Vocation and Career
  • Lutheran Center for Faith, Values, and Community
  • Office of Student Activities
  • Language Departments
  • Restructuring of financials within SGA departments:
  • SGA receives a rather large budget every year (~$500k), most of which is earmarked for specific organizations within SGA, after which there is little direct oversight on spending. It is imperative that organizations receiving SGA funds utilize those funds in a manner that is spread out through both semesters, and that funds are accounted for to students. Some improvements for this could include:
  • Publicly posting the balances of our funds on Oleville
  • Incentivize SGA branches to spend their funds throughout the year, which avoids wasteful spending at the end of each semester
  • Increasing the accessibility of the Capital Allocation Fund to all students with ideas for campus
Andy’s Experience: Student Government Experiences:

  • Student Activities Committee (SAC) Coordinator 2020-’21
  • SAC Member at large 2019-’20
  • Student Organizations Committee (SOC) Member at large 2019-’20
  • Viking Choir 2019’20, Cantorei 2020-21’
  • Asian Studies in Action 2020-21’
Prior to St. Olaf:
  • Minnesota Association of Honors Societies Vice President 2018-’19
  • Hennepin Division President of the Minnesota Association of Student Councils 2017-’18

Michael’s Experience: Student Government Experiences:

Meet Andy


Hello everyone! My name is Andy Nelson and I’m so excited to announce my candidacy for SGA President. In my free time you’ll find me spending time with friends, working on my bonsai trees, and planning student events at St. Olaf! I’m a rising junior with a double major in Economics and Chinese, concentrating in International Relations and Asian Studies. At my time at St. Olaf I have joined student government and fallen in love with the way SGA operates and works for students. However, I believe that my running mate, Michael and myself have a plan to reinvigorate SGA and make it more accessible and inclusive for all students. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our platform!




Meet Michael


Hello! I am Michael Paredes and I am excited to introduce myself as a candidate for Vice-President at St. Olaf College. I am a Quantitative Economics and Political Science major in the Class of ‘22, and have been involved in activities ranging from Hall Council in Kildahl, music with the Norseman Band, and student interests with the Investment Society. I have also dedicated my time at St. Olaf to represent the International Student Community as Senator; and to develop Olacoral: a Belizean-American startup focused on mitigating the impact of invasive species, like the lionfish, on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef system. I’m motivated by the transformative power that Oles represent, and have encountered endless reasons to believe that Oles can change the world. I look forward to combining my skills as your next Vice-President, and I am confident that Andy and I will be able to shape Olaf into a community that brings out the best in you!

ADC Coordinator

Sandra Chimutsipa

Psychology '23

My Platform


Programming to your taste! Meet Sandra Hi everyone! My name is Sandra Chimutsipa and I am running for After Dark Committee Coordinator. I am an international Student from Zimbabwe. I am majoring in Psychology with concentrations in International Relations and Management Studies. I would describe myself as someone who is in love with music, all the different genres. I sing and play acoustic guitar. Currently, my favorite place on campus is the Office of Student Activities on Wednesday because they have popcorn, otherwise it’s the gym. I look forward to interacting with you all. Why am I running for this position?

  • Experience - Being a member of ADC first and later a Coordinator has given me the taste of what it means to coordinate a team as well as plan campus events. This means, next year, we will not be starting from scratch and we will make programming better.
  • Passion - Programming is fun and knowing how the programs we put up will add value to someone’s college experience is an important part of me. More importantly, the interactions with my team and the rest of the student body is a valuable experience.
  • Programming is fun! - As Coordinator, I am constantly connecting with students, which enables me to to listen to the programming needs of students. This position has allowed me to know more people on campus and build relationships with different people at events. Moreover, it has been a pleasure working with my current team and I would like to continue building a team that meets the programming needs of students. I really enjoy the connections I make during events, office hours and I am extending an open invitation to you all, to join my office hours and let’s connect.
What am I looking to work on next year?
  • Increasing late night programming on and off-campus
  • Work to ensure that night life on campus is vibrant and students are not limited to campus but can explore Northfield and the Twin Cities as well
  • Improved Communication and awareness of late night programs on campus
  • Ensure early marketing of events such that everyone is aware of events happening on and off campus on time
  • Increased Student engagement
  • Events on campus are for the student body and it is essential that we get an idea of what kind of events students are looking for. We will have open meetings every month where the student body can bring ideas of events that they would like to see on campus
  • My office hours will be open to everyone and if that does not work with everyone, we can always use email
  • Inclusion
  • My team will be welcoming for people of all races, sexuality, class year and age. We will also welcome different ideas. Basically everyone interested in programming is welcome to join the team
  • Collaboration
  • I plan on working with other programmers in SGA to bring more fun events and activities for the student body

We all know St. Olaf College has a myriad of problems. As your BORSC Coordinator, I’d work to bring BORSC even more recognition and therefore ability to solve these problems. BORSC occupies a unique position in SGA, connecting students and administration. However, we need the help of all of you, the students, to motivate the College to take us seriously. With your passion and my leadership, I know we can create lasting change: everything from renovating outdated dorms to acquiring a student vote on the Board of Regents. I promise you that I will always listen to you and that together, we will change St. Olaf College.




Meet Fenton


Hi, I’m Fenton! I’m a first-year from a small town in Pennsylvania. I’m really proud of what BORSC has already accomplished, from our Student Self Advocacy Handbook to our presentation about how the College can become more antiracist. I would love the opportunity to convince even more administrators that the College can do better. Outside of BORSC, I intend to major in computer science, work as an SI leader for an intro CS class, and really enjoy hiking and camping.

I am from a city on the shore of Lake Michigan named Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and I came to St. Olaf because I had already followed in my brother's footsteps for the first 18 years of my life and I thought that I might as well extend that another four years. I hope to move to Minneapolis and become a lactation consultant within the next 10 years, and I absolutely love the amount of lakes that Minnesota has because it feels like home to me. I am a huge football fan, including high school, D3, the 2019 NCAA D1 LSU National Championship Team, and finally, the Cincinnati Bengals, but I really do not like being involved in competition of any kind. I *definitely* consider myself much more of an observer than a do-er but I have enjoyed do-ing SGA stuff for the past three years in SOC and on Senate.

I am from a city on the shore of Lake Michigan named Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and I came to St. Olaf because I had already followed in my brother's footsteps for the first 18 years of my life and I thought that I might as well extend that another four years. I hope to move to Minneapolis and become a lactation consultant within the next 10 years, and I absolutely love the amount of lakes that Minnesota has because it feels like home to me. I am a huge football fan, including high school, D3, the 2019 NCAA D1 LSU National Championship Team, and finally, the Cincinnati Bengals, but I really do not like being involved in competition of any kind. I *definitely* consider myself much more of an observer than a do-er but I have enjoyed do-ing SGA stuff for the past three years in SOC and on Senate. I paint my nails every Wednesday at 9pm for 2 hours and the other hours of my week are spent thinking about gluten-free food. Huge Sprite person.
