Voice re-elected, seeking cabinet members

 

May 1, 2014

On Friday, April 18, the Cleveland State University Board of Elections announced the winners of the Student Government Association’s spring election.

The Voice, consisting of President Allison Dumski, Vice-President Hazem Jadallah, Secretary Emily Halasah and Treasurer Kyle Kubovcik triumphed over challenger Surprise Party.

“I was so excited and nervous all day,” said SGA president Allison Dumski. “We were relieved when we found out we won.”

Dumski explained that their campaign, based around 50 things that students have expressed concern about on campus, is exactly what they plan on working on over the next year. Some of the things that were listed include standardizing text book prices, extending library hours and publicizing the professor evaluation scores.

Dumski is currently working on the issues with textbook standardization, as well as the 50th anniversary celebration this fall and Homecoming.

Dumski said that she wants to make the professor evaluation scores available on Campusnet when students sign up for classes, allowing them to see how other students feel about the professor.
She said that it would be similar to ratemyprofessor.com, but with more data and more useful information.

Another idea that Dumski wants to implement is a reorganizing and restructuring of the SGA cabinet, in order to make it more successful. She hopes to begin the process by filling in the vacancies over the summer before the fall semester starts.

“Watch out for applications during the summer,” Dumski said. “There will be scholarships available, too.”

Dumski said that the officers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, with some of them being commuters, some living on campus and one that is involved in Greek Life. She said that the range of experience that the group brings will be valuable.

“We want people to feel like they can come and talk to us,” Dumski said. “We want to get the student’s voice across.”
