President (1 candidate)

Name: Sabrina Moul

Major: English- Secondary Education

Class Year: 2021

Reason for running: I have been involved in student government since my freshman year. I have served both on the general senate as well as the executive board, and therefore am familiar with the responsibilities for both, and the necessary skills that are required for the positions. 

How to make Endicott a better place: I hope to make Endicott a better place by increasing the visibility of SGA. I think a lot of students know that we exist, but are not aware to the full extent of what we do and how we can help the student body. If elected president, I will do everything I can to make sure that students understand we are serving them, and providing a direct link between what they want, and what administration can do to adhere to certain requests. Hopefully student government can become an organization on campus that is easily recognizable and understood to be in the student body's best interest!

Name: Maura Zaccaria

Major: Nursing

Class Year: 2021

Reason for running: Having previous SGA experience, I want to continue the work of representing the students of Endicott in important matters on campus. 

How to make Endicott a better place: I want to work with the rest of SGA to be the successful gap between administration and the students. I want to specifically work on getting SGA more involved in student’s everyday lives and help SGA become a more prominent figure on campus.

I think that the Student Government Association is a great way to get to know other people all while making the Endicott community more connected. I also feel that SGA gives students that are a part of it a sense of leadership and helps them see all that they are capable of. 

How to make Endicott a better place: Making Endicott a better place in my eyes consists of making it more connected and making it so that everyone feels safe. By funding events and activities on campus, I think there is potential for more people to find out what clubs and organizations exist on campus and to find more people to get to know during their time here. By getting to know more people and joining more clubs, it is inevitable that the campus will be more connected. I wish to have the opportunity to do these things for Endicott in this upcoming academic year!
