The Undergraduate Council (UGC) is one of the three main governing bodies of the Student Assembly. It is comprised of the class officers from the undergraduate classes. Every year, each class directly elects its President, Vice-President of Advocacy, Vice-President of Social Affairs, Treasurer, and Secretary. The Undergraduate Council is a space where the class leadership can act both separately and collectively, all while learning from one another and representing each respective class. The Undergraduate Council Co-Chairs for the 2013-2014 Session of the Student Assembly is Brett Prestia (’14) and Yousif Al-Amin (’16).
So what does the Undergraduate Council do? Working together with the Executive and Senate, the UGC represents the student body and advocates on its behalf. But also, we want to make sure that students are having a good time [...because, frankly, we are all a bunch of college kids]. This is manifested through coordinated campus-wide events such as Homecoming, Warm Wednesdays King & Queens Ball, ongoing class festivities and initiatives, and other various events.
The mission of the Undergraduate Council is also its vision: we can imagine the campus coming together, and we want you to see it too.
