I am running for SGA President because now, more than ever, there is a need for a strong student government with a clear vision and focused deliverables. As chief of staff for the current SGA, I have learned so much about the institution and the possibilities. If elected president, I will introduce plans to create a Code of Expectations for the University that will outline our expectations, as students, of how decisions and overall communication should be accomplished. Additionally, I will create a committee to work with administrators on a review of the University Mission Statement. These are important steps but not the ultimate solution. SGA needs to be transparent in ways we have never before attempted. When issues arise, SGA should organize town halls, followed by University-wide statements on clear steps of action. I am running to tackle current issues and issues that are still to come. I understand that SGA is a reactionary organization, and I hope that with your vote, I can be the next SGA President.

The Emory Wheel was founded in 1919 and is currently the only independent, student-run newspaper of Emory University. The Wheel publishes weekly on Wednesdays during the academic year, except during University holidays and scheduled publication intermissions.

The Wheel is financially and editorially independent from the University. All of its content is generated by the Wheel’s more than 100 student staff members and contributing writers, and its printing costs are covered by profits from self-generated advertising sales.
