We welcome Reagan Martin as the incoming President!
1. Increase public relations
o When asking students what they wanted to see from the EBSS next year I saw a clear trend emerge, many of them didn’t really know what the EBSS does and how they contribute to the lives of students of Edwards. I would create a year in review report that details the events, networking opportunities, and professional development sessions we had as well as our financial statements, so every member of our college can be as informed as possible.
2. Student Spaces
o Over the course of last year, it became apparent to me that the resource room is being booked during peak use times such as the start of the year, midterms and finals. I would look to start talks with faculty to schedule times that wouldn’t impede on the study efforts of students.
3. Tutoring or Mentoring program
· Students in their 3rd/4th/5th year have a wealth of knowledge and resources that often go unutilized by the 1/2nd years. I believe we should implement a system where older students can volunteer to be matched with newer students, so they have someone they can reach out to with questions or concerns.
4. Experiential Learning
o Classes teach you a lot of theory but often lack the application to the real world. I believe students should be taught how to use common applications like Excel, Adobe, and so many more. I propose the EBSS, in coordination with the Edwards clubs, offer more workshops to teach the students of Edwards how to use the tools they need to prosper in the working world.
