College of Human and Environmental Sciences Senate Candidates:
Hello, my name is Jack Baron and I am currently studying in the Department of Human Environmental Science. I am running for a Senate seat to better improve my Department’s representation on campus as well as a serve as a voice for the many others in my college. I am confident that my work ethic will fit strongly within in this senate and I can make a change for the UA community.
I’m Harris Bolus, and I’m running for re-election to the HES senate. As a nutrition major on the pre-med track, I have unique ideas and an original perspective on how to make an impact on our great community here at UA. I’ve learned a lot over the past year of involvement with student government and I hope to continue serving my fellow students by representing your goals and concerns in the senate. This year, I will prioritize starting a community garden on campus and making better, more productive use of green spaces all over campus. This would be an amazing opportunity to start a gardening club, and could help provide fresh fruits and vegetables to the alarming number of children in Tuscaloosa with limited access to healthy food. One of my main concerns will be introducing alternatives to the $3,000 “All-Access” meal plan for freshmen with dietary restrictions. Our dining halls at UA do not provide kosher, halal, or adequate vegan options, meaning that many students can’t eat what they serve. Lastly, I will continue work with the Sustainability Coalition to raise awareness for environmental initiatives and strive to implement innovative solutions for increasing campus sustainability. I hope to earn your vote and will be proud to represent you in our university’s senate.
I, Rachael England, am formally expressing my intent to serve the College of Human Environmental Sciences as a SGA Senator. As a representative of all students I will work diligently to promote educational efforts about the dangers of drunk driving and how to prevent in. Furthermore, I support efforts to better light our campus, and surrounding off campus areas to keep our students safe. Throughout my time as an HES student, my constituents and I have noticed that our college would benefit from more opportunities to network with our college’s alumni and learn about their professional careers. As a senator I vow to use position to establish relationships with faculty in the College of HES and organize networking events.
I am Caroline Graham from Spanish Fort, Alabama. If elected for senator of the college of Human Environmental Sciences, I intend to put forth my best efforts to better the Tuscaloosa community and student body. As students at The University of Alabama we are all committed to a tradition of excellence. I want to represent the college of Human Environmental Sciences in SGA to do what I can to ensure that each and every individual student has a voice, is involved and contributes to the University’s overall tradition of excellence.
My name is Katie Larson and I am a freshmen Apparel and Textiles major from Vestavia Hills, Alabama. I have decided to run for SGA Senate for the College of Human Environmental Sciences because of my passion to incorporate volunteering into my field of study. Throughout my time at the university I have been greatly inspired by the organizations I serve on. Being a part of some of the many different opportunities to give back has inspired me to serve students in the HES college by promoting ways to become increasingly integrated and interactive with other colleges and student organizations. I believe that HES students are extremely creative and have so much to offer to help in bettering life on campus.
