USG Profile: Samantha Johnson

Name: Samantha Johnson 

Position you’re running for: Senator for the College of the Arts

Year and major: senior, fashion merchandising

Hometown: Plain City, Ohio

What makes you a representative of the student body?

I am very dedicated to Kent State and specifically my college. I am a proud Golden Flash and would love to be given the opportunity to represent my college. I am currently a Fashion School student ambassador and I would like to take this a few steps higher and represent my whole college.

What will be your top priority if elected?

If elected, my focus would be on the students within my college. I would take the opportunity to find out what concerns the students in my major (have) and make that my top priority. 

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

Communication and student involvement are two things that I think can be improved. There are so many chances to be involved, not only in USG but also on this campus in general that a lot of students are unaware of. If the opportunities of involvement are better communicated to the students, then our campus will greatly improve.

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

I think the best way to handle the growing prominence of diversity-related issues on campus would be to become more culturally aware. These diversity-related issue are not only happening on our campus but all over the world.
