Meet the Candidates: Anna Smith

Anna Smith is a physics pre-health freshman running to be a College of Arts and Sciences senator. This year, she was a part of the First-Year Council.


What role do you think the Senate should have in determining how elections are run?
I think the Senate should have a representative on the elections committee. The elections code for this year has a good representation from all branches of SGA sitting on the elections committee.

Should senators be required to hold bi-semester town halls with the constituents from their college?

If a large portion of the student body thinks their senators aren’t representing them properly, what should the students do?
If students believe they are not represented properly, they should talk to their senators directly. If the problem is not fixed, they should seek solutions from higher up.

Why are you running for this position?
Ever since I set foot on Loyola’s campus, I have known that I wanted to be very involved. This is one way I can give back to a community that has already invested so much in me.

If elected, what do you hope to accomplish as a senator for SGA?
I hope to represent my peers in an efficient and effective manner.

Why should students vote for you?
Students should vote for me because I am driven and very passionate about the Loyola community.

Is there anything else you would like to say about your campaign?
I am looking forward to taking on a leadership role at Loyola.
