USG Profile: Nicholas Peters

Name: Nicholas Peters

Position you’re running for: Senator for the College of Communication and Information

Year and major: junior, digital media production

Hometown: Avon, OH

What makes you a representative of the student body?

I live in the Living Learning Community for CCI and am very involved in campus life. I know a lot of people and therefore I hear a lot about what people want and expect out of our college. I want to be their voice.

What will be your top priority if elected?

Enhancing the standard of education within our school as well as improving the social network between other schools on campus and preparing our students for the working world will be my major priority. However, my main priority will be listening to the students and trying to accomplish what they want done. 

What do you think can be improved on with USG and the campus in general?

I think sometimes priorities are lost in translation, so focusing on sustainability, diversity and education would be the top priorities for me that I think could use more attention.

How will USG handle the growing prominence of diversity-related issues on campus?

Diversity is something to embrace and celebrate. From race, gender, orientation, to anything else, it is  our differences that make us human. The first step in fixing an issue is acknowledging that there is one, so I believe that through a lot of discussion and programs, USG and the university can embrace our diversity and solve the issues at hand.
