What do you hope to achieve as a Senator?

One of my main goals for senate this year is to pass legislation promoting the development of more outdoor study areas for students to utilize. Being in Texas, we have several months of weather that would be great for studying outside. Unfortunately there are not nearly enough study areas to take advantage. I would like to see more tables placed in open areas for students to enjoy.”

These enrich campus life and make students’ experiences at SMU unique from students at other schools.”
