My name is Jamie Cardenas and I am running for the position of student body president. I am a political science major with a minor in Psychology, and a member of the St. Edward’s University graduating class of 2017.
I am a Resident Assistant for the Social Justice LLC in Le Mans Hall, and currently serve as a Student Government senator, vice president for the Latino Student Leaders Organization, a dance instructor for SEU Ballet Folklorico, and an active member of Campus Ministry.
My involvement in the SEU community has ignited within me the passion to serve the students of this University. As an SGA senator I have explored expanding dining options for vegan students, as well as those with other dietary needs.
I am currently looking into making a safer campus, and obtaining an American Sign Language course. If elected, Carlos Martinez and I will continue to advocate for campus safety, and campus sustainability.
Our goal is to make SGA one with the student body, allowing us to mesh and bond with those whom we will serve. The student voice is most important in implementing change, and we want to make sure that yours is heard.
