I initially became interested in USG in the spring semester because of all the cool events they set up. I liked how they tried to have the student body participate in voting for who would represent Baruch; you could really see everyone's sincerity. I decided to join USG after seeing how much they helped student life organize the leadership weekend which was a really awesome outdoor experience from start to finish. I joined the Public Relations Committee that organizes events, puts out the newsletter, and trying to get the student body more involved with USG. They were responsible for the awesome homecoming last semester that brought students of baruch together with pumpkin painting, food, movies, and dancing. The Public Relations Committee as well as USG as a whole is very welcoming, always looking for new ideas and trying to figure out a way to get closer to what bearcats need from student government. USG wants bearcats to have the best college experience and they do that by leaving most of their meetings open to the public where anyone could have their voice heard. I feel very at home with the PR Committee and I am looking forward to future experiences.
