What are your primary goals for the coming year? What can members of the class of 2016 expect?
“Our primary goal is to serve the class of 2016 to the best of our ability by creating exciting programs that are need-specific to our class. We always to have an ear to the class to see what is wanted or needed. We also strive to create a larger sense of community spanning across all colleges of the class of 2016. Students of the class of 2016 can expect programming that allows for them to take a break from their hectic academic schedules and have a time to relax. We are also devoted to working with other offices on campus to enlighten students to some of the resources they may not know are available to them. Overall, we try to create events that the class would want to go to and maybe for a bonus they meet a few new people while they’re there.” — Tisch sophomore Dan Cassin, President
What motivated you to run for this position? What do you hope to get out of this experience?
“We don’t really have a strong overarching community at NYU; we are built on many micro-communities. With the Class Activities Board, we have the opportunity to bring the class together and create some sort of a community, even if it’s just a few times a year.” — Gallatin sophomore Mikey Hengerer, Vice President of Internal Affairs
What does this Class Activities Board hope to accomplish?
“CAB16 is going to be bigger and better next year. My dream event is to get a performer to put on a giant concert for the whole school.” — CAS sophomore Michelle Signer, Vice President of Finance
