USG Profile: Melissa North

Name: Melissa North 

Position you’re running for: Senator for the college of nursing

Year and major: junior, nursing 

Hometown: Toledo, OH

What makes you a representative of the student body?

I’ve served as this position on USG last year and I hope to continue working with the dean and the college.

What will be your top priority if elected?

My top priority will be to provide more opportunities for nursing students to meet mentors and other students through student organizations.

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

On Kent State’s campus there are so many students who have never heard of USG and may not understand what USG does. I think USG needs to spread awareness of what they are doing each week in their meetings and also let students know that they are here to help both individuals and student organizations.
