With the semester coming to a close, the new freshmen senators of Washburn Student Government Association are starting to adjust and get accustomed to their roles.

“I came in not knowing what WSGA was really and I have learned a lot since then and have enjoyed getting to know everyone,” said Cayla Tate, freshman senator.

Many freshmen senators agree that getting to be responsible for votes and how the school spends their money is a lot of fun.

“I am really enjoying it, I feel like I’m learning a lot, especially handling budgets and stuff and being accountable for votes,” said David Hutchinson, freshman senator.

The vote allows them to help give organizations money and to help make decisions, a responsibility many of them feel very grateful to have a part in.

“It’s really great that I get too play a crucial role in allocations of the schools money and what it goes to and how we help out the other organizations”

WSGA also gives them an opportunity to get involved and not only help out the campus but the community too.

“I feel like I have a lot of opportunities here,” said Andrea Ramirez, freshman senator. “It’s good to feel like you’re doing something for your school and gives you the opportunity of getting involved.”

In addition to helping out the school and being involved just like any other organization, WSGA has given them the opportunity to meet a lot of new people.

“I am really enjoying meeting all the great people like the senators and all the staff members that have come in to talk to us, that is really neat,” said Shelbie Konkel, freshman senator.

However even though all the Senators may have different parts of WSGA that they enjoy there is one thing that is evident from all of them, they enjoy serving in WSGA.

“I love WSGA, I like being able to be a part of something that’s all student based for the whole campus, I like being able to work with other student organizations,” said Betsy Wooden, freshman senator.
