2018-2019 ASCSU President

A Letter from the President…

Hello Rams,

I’ll do the one thing most politicians can’t do – be brief and honest. With this, Kevin and I bring a unique perspective into our administration. We have felt that in the past, ASCSU has existed almost entirely for the benefit of itself. We instead believe that the focus of student government should be on the students, and not on ourselves. Upon entering office, Kevin and I brought 3 priorities to the table: affordable parking, changing the U+2 law and creating informative registration. Since taking office, we have already created a dialogue with the city around changing laws that directly attack students. We have also created measures in enhancing tailgating to be the most robust yet. We believe we’ve put forth a tangible plan to achieving a better student life in the city of Fort Collins, and look forward to working with everyone to see it accomplished.

On another note, our door is always open, so come on in.

Interested in Changing Something on Campus?

One avenue to effect change on campus is through legislation. Any student is eligible to write their own legislation, but you can also contact a Senator to help you write it. Through legislation, the Administration of Colorado State University can hear your voice. Additionally, contacting a member of the Executive Branch can help to direct you to the right person. We listen, so click the button below.
