- [/media-credit]Hi my name is Kerrigan Murray. I am a freshman here at Quinnipiac and running for class representative. In high school, I was secretary of my class and had many duties and responsibilities. I am a very outgoing person who is willing to help any classmates out when needed and I will always keep an open mind when discussing new topics. I am willing to put 110% if elected as your class representative. I am hard working and a very dedicated student. It would be my pleasure to represent this class. Thank you for your time.[/media-credit]Dear Freshman Class Of 2016, I’m Lauren Allen and I’m running in this election to be your Class Representative. The whole purpose I am running for this position is because I would like to be acquainted with all of you as well as I can. As a representative I plan to make Quinnipiac a more fun and interactive place than it already is. I plan to take everything I do seriously and handle it to the best of my abilities. Please vote for me and give me the chance to do this, I promise I won’t let you down!
Let’s be honest, no one wants a class president who’s afraid to get out and make things happen. If I am elected president, you can be positive that anything you want said or done can happen through me. I plan on pushing for things like better cell phone reception around campus, creating club sports and expanding intramurals, and more community events. I am already a part of the Quinnipiac community as a part of the staff for The Chronicle and a member of iLead. I’m always available to talk: just stop by Commons (263) or call me (203-747-9930).

- Hello students of the Class 2016 at Quinnipiac University. My name is Julia Gonsalves and I am running for the class office of Vice President. Many of you may be thinking, “What makes Julia so great for this position?” Well first of all I am very experienced when being a part of student government. I was a representative for my class all through high school, and I’m very personable. The student body would be my prized possession and there would be no questions unanswered. With 100% percent effort, I will fulfill the requests of the class of 2016.Hey guys, my name is Danny Brecher. I am from Long Island, and live in Commons. I love to wrestle, play baseball, and just overall have a good time with good friends. I know I am a great choice to be our class VP, because of my great leadership and personable characteristics. Anybody that meets me can instantly pick up on my fun, yet serious attitude. I will work to make sure our voice is heard, and that we have an amazing first year on campus. If you want success, and a great year, vote for Danny Brecher, freshman VP.Growing up, I wasn’t the most outgoing person. Being teased was something I dealt with almost everyday of my life. It took a huge hit on my self-esteem, to the point where I almost wanted to switch schools. Time passed, peoples’ voices started to fade and eventually I found my own voice. I learned to get things done I needed to let go of insecurities and march to the beat of my own drum. Being elected Vice President at my high school taught me that an underdog could make their way to the top. I’m the best candidate for Freshman Class President because every student has a voice, and by picking me your voice will be heard.—-Emily FaganI have been nominated to many leadership roles, both from my high school and in other communities. I was the president of four clubs at my high school, one of which I founded. I also attended a few leadership conferences that were nationally held. I was also voted to be the class treasurer for my class. I believe I would make a good president because I am personable, and I have good leadership skills. My goal as President would be to insure that all of the tasks we are charged with as a class are done quickly and effectively. — Jacob BulianHey guy, my names Jonathan Atkin, but most people call me Jonny. I’m a Legal Studies major from Boston, Mass. I consider myself to be down-to-earth and easy to talk to. I have a broad range of interests, so it helps me stay in-tune to what goes on around campus. I take pride in my ability to effectively communicate with a large group of people. If chosen to represent the freshman class, I will do everything in my power to improve our community.
- Hello, my name is Ciera Omos! If you vote for me, then you are voting for a forceful advocate of the freshman class. Although everyone may not know me personally, I have a very outgoing personality and would be grateful for the opportunity to represent your voice as Vice President. I would love to hear all your ideas and see where we can take them. Nothing would excite me more than making changes to better your college experience. I am also proposing that the class of 2016 holds different events to bring our class together as a community. I stand in admiration of your passions, and I humbly ask for support in the coming election.

If there is a need for change, I will be dedicated to do my best to have an outcome that will suit the needs of the freshman class. I am one who leads by example and is dedicated to bring positive energy with me at all times. My name is Adrianna Vicino and I would be honored to represent the freshman class to the fullest in the Quinnipiac University Community.
Throughout my whole life I’ve been the type of person to lead rather than follow. Always the first to come up with ideas in a group, lead a team on the field during athletics and most importantly, excel at almost anything I put my mind to. If you are looking for promises, I will offer none, except that I will take every idea of yours into consideration and once one comes that’s possible, I will run with it in full force. I will exceed all expectations and make Quinnipiac University something we are all a little bit more proud of.— Anthony GeranioA good president must have leadership qualities, an outgoing personality, and a love for bettering the community. I believe I am a good fit for president because I not only have those qualities but I also have the experience. Throughout my high school career, while participating in other clubs, I was president of the debate team, and a devoted representative in my school’s Student Government. I have worked with my fellow students and advisors to help improve school quality before and am very excited to do it again for QU. I will not let the class of 2016 down!— Bianca Solano”]
