A goal that I have for SGA this year is to encourage everyone that their voices matter and deserve to be heard. It is important to know as Lasell students we can make a difference in how we spend our time here.

Class Presidents

Kevin Name: Kevin Fay '21
Position: Senior Class President
Major: Sports Management

I put on events that help bring students of different social groups into one social class.

Maggie Name: Maggie Clukey '22
Position: Junior Class President
Major: Event Management  
Hometown: Westerly, RI
Bio:  My name is Maggie Clukey, I am a Junior Event Management major from Westerly, RI. Something I noticed when coming to Lasell was that my class of 2022 personally didn't feel as connected to the school and the other classes as much as they should be, I asked around and realized that it wasn't just my class who felt that disconnect. I joined the Student Government Association (SGA) last year at Lasell to help try to connect the different class years with each other and the school and provide that two-way conversation that needs to be available. This year I wanted to continue to achieve this goal while also listening to everyone on campus to hear them voice their concerns and issues and helping them the best to my ability. As the Junior Class President of SGA here at Lasell, I am a part of a group of different people who all have different goals while being on SGA, which gives the group different perspectives of what we need to get done. We all have different goals, but one goal we have in common is to make this great college as great as it can be, which is something truly special. Besides being a part of SGA, I am the Class President of the Class of 2022, the Co-President of Random Acts of Kindness, the President of the Campus Activities Board, a Member of the American Cancer Society, a 2020 Orientation Leader, as well as a Peer Mentor. When I am not at school, I love to be anywhere that the ocean is, boating, and spending time with my family  and friends!
