ON THE RUN
Kylie came to campus in Fall of 2018 hardly knowing any of her fellow freshman classmates. It wasn't until she bonded with her CHN roommate and took a leap of faith applying to a HUSA internship that she began to find her Howard family.
Very quickly, Kylie saw the ability HUSA had to not only bring students together, but also make direct impact on campus, give back to the community, and lead large scale advocacy projects.
Over the past three years as a student leader Kylie has helped development and executed the following initiatives:
+ Co-Organizing student business cards project
+ Co-Developing the "Harvard x Howard" Weekend Experience in Cambridge, MA
+ Managing the first-ever partnership between student government and Howard's Assessment committee; authoring the first-ever SGA climate survey
+ Authoring the successful "Academic Pass Fail" proposal to the Office of the Provost
+ Creating the "Meet HUSA Website" and managing the monthly student business/artist feature program
Vice Presidential Candidate
Lauren is affectionately known to family and friends as Lolo -- and as "lolothescientist" to social media followers.
Lolo has run two prior successful campaigns as a freshman and a sophomore. She has also been able to make professional connections with Howard Administrators through work study appointments within the Office of External Affairs and the Office of the President.
Lauren's drive for student government is centered on making things easier for the next, and future, Bison classes on campus. That's why she is most excited about executing the following platform points:
+ Reinstating Undergraduate, Graduate, and Faculty trustees to ensure that all stakeholder voices are present
+ Working with HU Communications to provide more transparent/proactive emails and creating new, innovative ways for HUSA to communicate with students
+ Safely bringing 'Howard Culture' back and contributing to giving the two first-year classes (HU23, HU24) a memorable experience on campus
+ Advocating for President Frederick to reinstate his 2015-2016 unanimous Trustee decision to reward students who graduate on time/early with a tuition rebate
