Biology and Mathematical Biology

Hi everyone! I'm Sophia (she/her/hers) and I am so excited to be the SGA President for the year 2023-2024! Also, I'm a Biology major with a concentration in Mathematical Biology. Outside of St. Olaf, I love to kayak, watch movies, have dinner parties with friends, and read. As the SGA President next year, I'm very focused on creating an inviting SGA environment for all students, increasing accessibility to resources, and removing some common road blocks to student advocacy. To me, my role is to connect students with on-campus resources, advocate for change on campus, and make sure students genuinely feel heard. I am always happy to answer any questions or chat with anyone, so stop by the OSA to say hello!
