Question one: What is your major, year in school? What do you want to do when you graduate (or grow up, whichever comes first)?
Question two: What qualifies you (experience) and what characteristics would you bring to the senate that will make you a vital part of the student senate?
Question three: What do you see as the most important aspect of the position you are applying for?
1. I’m a sophomore with a psychology major and a speech communications minor. I hope to attend graduate school after I graduate and eventually receive my doctorate in clinical child psychology and open my own practice.
2. I have two years experience as a student representative on the General Student Affairs Committee, which operates off of the Faculty Senate here at Portland State. I intend to bring this experience plus that from my high school’s student government to the Senate next year to best serve the student body.
3. One important aspect of college life is being involved in your school and assist the university in making the most of your academic experience.
