What motivated you to run for this position? What do you hope to get out of this experience?
“I have been on the Class Activities Board since my freshman year and it has been such a rewarding experience seeing the organization develop into what it is today. I have always loved the fact that this is the only organization who programs across schools so I have met so many amazing NYU student leaders through this opportunity. I am so excited to be on the Executive Board again for my senior year to create meaningful, memorable programs for my peers.” — Steinhardt junior Pilar Mendez, Vice President of Internal Affairs
What does this Class Activities Board hope to accomplish?
“To have the best possible senior year. We really just want to have the best possible programs to enhance student life for everyone. I’m really looking forward to Senior Week, I have a lot of friends who are seniors this year and they loved all the programs like Strawberries and Champagne and Senior Formal.” — Poly junior Colin Waddell, Vice President of Finance
What is something that maybe has not been done so well in the past that this Class Activities Board hopes to improve on?
“Since it’s our senior year, I really want to make sure we take the opportunity to come together as a class and go out with a bang. My primary goal is to increase awareness of CAB events — we do more than just Senior Week. I’m definitely going to try to increase engagement with the class to strengthen attendance and get everyone involved in all the cool events hosted by the Class Activities Boards. CAB has an opportunity in our last year to plan some really amazing events for the Class of 2015, so I can’t wait for the chance to make that happen.” — CAS junior Aurora Clare, Vice President of Public Relations
What are you most looking forward to for the coming year?
“Senior year is a big year, and I’m excited to help plan the activities that will frame our NYU experience and hopefully leave everyone with great memories of our last year here.” — CAS junior Adam Brulhardt, Vice President of Administration
