On Sunday, Aug. 19, incoming Student Senate president Nick Arbaugh ‘20 emailed the rising junior and senior classes to inform them about the results of the Senate’s search for one senior and three juniors to serve as senators for their classes. This search was necessitated by the lack of applications during the regular process last semester.

After going through a “huge and diverse pool of candidates from both classes,” Arbaugh and the Student Senate Executive Board decided to appoint Jacob Marogi as the new senior class senator and Katherine Cramer, Hannah Dalzell, and Zachary Sobeck as the new junior class senators.

The Student Senate Executive Board’s search criteria were in line with Arbaugh’s campaign platform for Student Senate President, in which he called for “reunifying student government into the activist body it should be.”

As Arbaugh stated, “We wanted people who know what they’re getting in to, who are the activists that the student body needs them to be, and who understand where Senate is going in the future.” In short, they wanted people with, in Arbaugh’s words, “chutzpah.”

Elections for the Class of 2022’s senators will occur early in the semester, and the Senate’s first meeting will occur Monday, September 3 at 7:00 p.m.
