What is your biggest goal for USG in the 2014-2015 Academic Year?
USG is most effective when it reaches as many undergraduates as possible. My vision is one of an easily accessible USG where it is clear to any undergraduate that if they have a problem they can come to USG and, through the Public Relations committee, witness the progression towards a solution.

What is the biggest issue you see your position having to face? How do you specifically plan on tackling it?
During the past year as Vice President of Public Relations I have come to face USG’s biggest challenge: finding exciting and innovative ways to engage all undergraduate students to reach a more positive student experience. I believe that a combination of traditional and non-traditional advertising is necessary to engage the greatest number of students. In terms of traditional publicity, I plan to continue the publication of the USG Newsletter. Somewhat non-traditionally, I plan to continue an increase in our presence on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
