Goals & Achievements I want to accomplish:
Strengthen relationship between NJIT student senate and clubs and organizations through monthly meetings with clubs and organizations’ representatives.
Strengthen relationship between NJIT student senate and the student body and faculty through monthly forums and class visits.
Installation of crosswalks and “Slow for Pedestrian” signs between Warren Street and the Fleischer Athletic Center to allow students to safely reach the light rail.
Fixing of all the drainage areas around campus, starting with the one between Cypress and Redwood in order to allow students to hang out outside their dorms.
Involve all NJIT students in the beautification and the security of the campus by allowing them to directly report through the senate website any issues encountered.
Being part of a cause you believe in not only gives purpose to your life, it gives you the opportunity to serve others while spiritually growing and bettering yourself and the community you are part of. NJIT allows students to not only attend college, but to be the college they want. During the two months I have been serving as the Senate Vice President of Administration, my team and I have been able to make happen the crosswalks between the Honors Dorm and the Soccer Field. There is still a lot I would like to accomplish. That’s the reason why I am running to stay the Senate Vice President of Administration.
