Get Involved And

I came into Senate my first year, just hoping to get involved and meet new people. Now, four years later serving as President, I not only met some of my best friends, but I've developed professionally and been able to implement numerous projects around campus for a better student experience.

Student Senate has enabled me to make many connections and has given me a lot of professional experience. Senate has given me the opportunity to meet with deans, directors, and other administrators and enact change at NJIT as a leading student voice.

I joined Senate to make a change. Along the way, I have gained friends, attended amazing events, and got some really cool merch. Moving from being a student-at-large to being the Vice President of Finance has provided me with professional development, allowed me to help others to the best of my ability, and make valuable improvements to the systems utilized by NJIT. Join Senate and be the change you want to see!

Working with the senators broadened my knowledge on the Academic Program at NJIT, and introduced me to problems while giving me a gateway to potentially solve them. I love working with differing opinions and getting closer to my administration, and I believe it's always important to keep in touch with your school!  🦈🦈🦈🦈
