As the president of the Junior Class Council, Lauren Russo has successfully organized or planned various events, including the Student Finance Board’s Halloween Dance and the junior class’ Coffeehouse. Russo has also been involved in the planning of the junior class’ Battle of the Bands.
Russo has been active in SGA programs and legislature throughout the year.
She participated in both TCNJ Holiday and Finals Fest at the end of last semester.
She also worked with the current vice president of Academic Affairs, Steven Link, in the co-sponsorship of a bill which added a new SGA internal position, coordinator of class councils, to its constitution.
If elected, Russo said she will continue to revamp SGA internal regulations, including revising the associate member program as well as establishing attendance and participation policies for senators.
“I think it is really important for senators to attend all meetings, general body and internal committees and also governance in order to stay informed on the business of the College,” Russo said.
Russo cites her two academic-year involvement with SGA as a qualification for the office of Executive Vice President: “I am very dedicated to SGA and I am very motivated to make change and improve the functions of SGA.”
