I started this blog years ago, 2016 to be exact. The Senate term at Western New England University is April 1 to April 1. And I had the opportunity to be in presidency April 1, 2015, to April 1, 2016. I was blessed to have such an incredible and supportive mentor, Dean Keizer.
Below is a picture of the President Staff Luncheon table set up. Those who are members of the President Staff were invited to have lunch with the Student Senate Executive Board to discuss the term, prominient issues and excitements, along with discussion on what the future holds for the University. This was third time attending a President Staff Luncheon, as I have every year that I have been on the Student Senate Executive Board. Lucky me, I sat next to President Caprio, the President of the University. It’s not every day that a college student gets to eat lunch with the president of their University.
Thank you notes were my best friend throughout the term. I loved writing them to people because it was just such a great reminder that people are doing great things for the organization and the school. I have such an obsession with buying them. My favorite place to get them is Home Goods, you can never get enough! They always have great deals and a wide variety. I just wrote a thank you note to everyone on my Executive Board at the end of the term.
I would spend hours and nights in the Senate office doing work, or preparing a meeting the night before. So much time goes into each meeting, and after a matter of an hour and fifteen minutes, all of your hours of hard work prior was all over.
This was intended to be so much longer, life just got in the way. 🙂 If you have any other questions about being a student senate president in college, let me know!
