Sophomore Sam Fosmire, history major
“With all the stuff about harassment from social media and stuff last year, that obviously has to be addressed. Making people feel safe on campus is probably one of the most important things he could do.”
Senior Sangeeta Parulekar, psychology major
“I think something big that would be really pivotal is if we just see more of him. Seeing that face and being able to talk to them face-to-face breaks down a lot of barriers. What a lot of students really need is more transparency from administrative parties. Also, more emphasis on racial tensions because it’s very clear on this campus that it’s a very white campus.”
Senior Tristen Payne, environmental economics major
“I’d really love to see classes more be more available. Like the kinesiology department: last year, not again this year, it’s closed. So if they fix that, it would be awesome.”
Junior Hannah Montague, computer science major
“Paying closer attention to the classes that are in high demand right now and accommodating for that.”
Senior Miriam Karamoko, psychology and french double-major
“I’m really hoping to see a crackdown on the sexual violence on campus and make victims or people dealing with that safe. Also, the racial tension on campus because there is one. As much as people want to not talk about it, there needs to be a point where we come in the space between and really address those issues.”
