Marissa Farris – Candidate Senator from the College of Business and Management

Hello Everyone,

My name is Marissa Farris and I am running for SGA “College of Business and Management Senator.”  I am in the Capital Scholars Honors Program, and involved with Leadership for Life, Alpha Phi Omega, and several other organizations on campus.  As a Business Administration major with a concentration in Marketing, and a Management minor, I have many ideas to bring to the table both academically and socially.

I am not hesitant when it comes to addressing key issues or suggesting new ideas.  I wish to serve as your voice on campus, and help make your visions a reality.  I have prior experience in student government as I spent the last four years serving on my high school student council—three of which were as Class President.

I plan to use this opportunity to make UIS what you, as the student body, wish it to be, and also interact and connect with more individuals in the community.  I am a naturally motivated, goal oriented individual, and I strongly feel I can make a difference on this campus.

Thank you for your time, and please vote on April 23rd and 24th!
