The Associated Students of Whittier College Senate’s mission statement says that the elected student government is “dedicated to the betterment of the College [. . .] serv[ing] the students first with integrity, dedication, responsibility, and humility.” If taking part in upholding this mission and serving on the ASWC Senate Table sounds interesting to you, you are in luck! The ASWC Senate is currently appointing a new Student Body Representative. Applications have been open from Monday, Jan. 25 at 10 p.m. and will close on Friday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. PST.

The position opening was originally promoted through the ASWC Senate Instagram page (@aswc_senate) on Tuesday morning. “[The Student Body Representative’s] main purpose on campus is to be the liaison between the student body and the ASWC Senate Table,” said Campus Relations Director, third-year Tori Marie Royster. “The Student Body Representatives on the Senate Table work together to bring light to the concerns of our student body and become the voice for many.”

To apply, interested students must visit Engage and fill out the Student Body Representative form. The form asks for your name, year, GPA, pronouns, and contact information. To qualify, applicants must be in good academic standing. The position is open to students of all years.

“The discussion process between the Executive Board will occur on Friday evening, and the contact of the recipient of the position will be contacted latest Saturday mid-afternoon if not earlier,” said Royster. The Executive Board is hoping to appoint the position over the weekend so that the chosen applicant can attend the first Senate meeting of Spring Semester on Monday, Feb. 1, where the representative will serve through the remainder of the Spring 2021 semester.
