In my four years as a Laurentian student, I have always been extremely passionate about making students’ quality of living better! As a Residence Assistant in my third year, I helped the residents of the complex deal with a variety of issues while living on their own. I am currently working as the Residence Program Coordinator where I am responsible for organizing community events for all 1400 students living on campus. One of the events I was responsible for overseeing was the ninth annual “Airbandz 4 Cancer”, where the Laurentian community broke the fundraising goal and raised 21,000 dollars for cancer research. As a current SGA board member, I have firsthand experience with how the association works. Through all of this, I realize that the Laurentian population is capable of remarkable things; I WILL work hard advocating, uniting, and supporting the students to show the potential our amazing school has.
My name is Steve Sutherland, and I am running for the position of President in the upcoming SGA/AGE Election. I am a 4th year Political Science student, however, this is my first year in Sudbury, as I was at the Barrie campus for the two years previous. I like to participate in a lot of different events, both on the fun side, and the serious side when need be. I have experience in doing this job, having been President in Barrie last year, and I know how to bring ALL students together. I think that together, we can all build a better association, and I’ve got a few ideas on how to do that, and I’m sure many of you do as well, so let’s work together, and see if we can improve life for everyone here at Laurentian University. Remember who really runs this university… L-WHO? L-YOU.
