Meet your CHaSS senator, Naomi Ward
Naomi is from Caldwell, Idaho, a suburb of Boise. She didn't plan on attending USU but loves being an Aggie and "wouldn't change a thing."
She believes Logan is absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall, and her life is changed for the better because of the Aggie family she has joined.
Naomi began school at USU in 2016. She is involved in the Speech and Debate club, USU Student Media, Kappa Delta sorority, and worked as a CHaSS Ambassador before she was elected senator.
Naomi believes getting involved has shaped her college experience and has made her fall more in love with USU. Each role she has previously held has prepared her to be the College of Humanities and Social Sciences senator.
As the 2019-2020 CHaSS senator, Naomi's goals include:
- Creating more networking opportunities
- Improving engagement with college clubs
- Building the CHaSS brand on campus and in the community
- Connecting students to research and internship opportunities to improve academic engagement in and out of the classroom
- Better implementing student feedback and more intentionally incorporating inclusion; and
- Sustainability in event planning.
Senator office hours: TSC 327
