President/Vice President Candidate

Daniel Barnhart
Daniel Barnhart - Candidate for President
Based on my years of experience within student government, I know what it takes to work with students, faculty, and administrators on controversial topics.  I will work closely with administrators and keep my fellow students informed on all issues within our university, our state, and the legislature. I want to build a better community on our campus which will help build a better community in our town.  Because this is our school! Together we can bridge any gaps between administration and students.
Sonja Choriki
Sonja Choriki - Candidate for VP
I am passionate about student government and I want to improve our University.  I will bridge the gap between different clubs and organizations.  The better we can all work together, the more we can accomplish within our school and our community. I will strive for teamwork, service work, and public relations. Because this is our school! Together we can bridge any gaps between students and student organizations.

President/Vice President Candidate

Alex Furois
Alex Furois - Candidate for President
With experience as both a senator and the business manager for ASMSUB, I believe I have the knowledge to propel senate further and aid our university’s growth.  My plan is to keep moving forward into the community but to also focus on re-connecting with the students and their clubs and organizations.  I want senate to have a closer relationship with the student body so that we can identify the issues that may occur and quickly resolve them.
Jamie Slaugh
Jamie Slaugh - Candidate for VP
I have served on Senate as a senator, Sustainability Coordinator and Student Resolution Officer.  Along, with Alex we have filled every position on Senate.  Therefore, the next step in our progression is to represent the students as President and Vice President.  Senate has distanced itself from the students and we need to close that gap! We should listen to student concerns and an environment that they can be proud of, with exciting events.  I would like to see our school continue with community involvement.  We may be a small school but together we can accomplish great things!

Hi, I’m Stephanie, a transfer student from Arizona.  As a transfer student, I understand the importance of making quality choices to benefit one’s goals, not only in college, but for one’s future.  Over the past two years at MSUB, I have been involved in several different clubs and committees on campus.  I feel this involvement shows my interest and dedication to MSUB, its students, and its future.  I hope to continue to help grow MSUB’s future goals.  Thank you for your consideration.  I would very much appreciate your vote to be on senate for my senior year!

If elected, I will work to increase students’ awareness of the opportunities available to them at MSUB. This includes student organizations/activities, scholarships and services. Furthermore, my role will always put the students’ interests first in order to help keep this university a premier place to study.  In my time here, I have met and made friends with some of the best and brightest young people in Montana, and my goal as senator is to work hard to serve their needs.

Like many others on campus, I think of MSUB very highly.  I enjoy the smaller feel at what still functions like a larger college.  I especially enjoy the community that this school builds.  For this reason I just hope to work toward ways of expanding that community, and helping it become more active.

I wish to benefit my campus and community.  With one year of Senate experience, I can bring leadership and understanding of our impact on the community to our new senators.  Thank you.

Senator-at-Large (City College)

Connor Gregg
Connor Gregg
I believe that I may offer support to the technical side of MSUB, and help bridge the gap between our very diverse campuses of education.  I can support technical programs that are not largely embraced or well-known, such as Phi Theta Kappa, Skills USA, or the writing club at City College.  My goals for the upcoming year are to help bring awareness to such groups that students may not have any idea that such programs even exist, to also attempt to bolster their numbers and to try and connect the groups more among themselves.
