I have really enjoyed being the secretary for the BE Undergraduate Board. I’m excited by the all the work that BEUB has accomplished over the last year—instituting curriculum reps and associate advisors, setting up the undergrad lounge, making some awesome t-shirts, holding grad school information sessions and throwing great study breaks. I’m running for President of the BE Undergraduate Board because I want to make sure that these great programs run by the BE undergrads for BE undergrads remain a permanent fixture at MIT. I think BEUB is an outstanding way for the BE Undergrads to help the faculty make BE the best it can be.
I think I’m a great candidate for President because of my experience in BEUB and other organizations on campus. By working on BEUB for the last year, I am already knowledgeable about the programs we run and the time commitment that being BEUB President will entail. Also, my experiences working on SWE Board as the Publicity Chair, Outreach Chair, and now Vice President of Outreach Programming have taught me how to collaborate with others for a common purpose, and get work done.
Over the last year, I have appreciated all the emails sent to BEUB and the conversations with students who had great suggestions for both our events and BE curriculum development. I promise your suggestions haven’t been lost, and as President I will continue to help make both BEUB and course 20 even better!
I’d really appreciate your vote for BEUB President. Thanks!
Although the secretary's duties may seem simple, I believe they are nonetheless of crucial importance to the smooth running of the entire Board. I believe that my past experience as secretary for my fraternity makes me well-qualified for this position. Additionally, I have a great deal of experience working with the ASA and the Schedules Office, so I feel that I would be able to act as a strong liaison between the Board and these administrative groups. All in all, I would be committed to improving upon the great things that past members of the Board have already accomplished.
