Addam Kinsel, Candidate for Graduate Student Senator
Over the past several months, I have had the honor to serve as your Graduate Student Senator. During this time, I have lobbied state legislators for increased funding for both the U of I System and UIS. I have also begun two main initiatives: 1) Increase WIFI coverage/availability on the Student Union Patio, the Colonnade, and the Brookens Library Patio and 2) Increase the awareness of the iCard Perks Program which allows students to receive discounts at various local businesses. I have worked diligently at reaching out to businesses throughout the city in hopes of increasing what the program has to offer so that you as students can get more out of your time not only at UIS, but in the city of Springfield. I am asking for your vote so I can continue to fight on behalf of UIS students and see these initiatives into fruition.
