Baker/Kohler to head Saint Mary’s Student Government Association

first_imgSaint Mary’s College Student Government Association (SGA) announced the incoming student body president and vice president, Kaitlyn Baker and Maddie Kohler, on Friday.Election week was exciting and stressful, but Kohler felt particularly confident during her speech in the dining hall Wednesday during dinner, she said.“We were always anxious to see how the other candidates were going to campaign,” she said. “But Wednesday night, when we gave our speeches, I was so proud to be telling the students what we want to do, if elected, and express our love for the College.”Kohler said she and Baker plan to attend SGA meetings and shadow the College’s outgoing student body president and vice president, McKenna Schuster and Sam Moorhead, to prepare for their term, which officially begins April 1.Baker said she and Kohler will begin the board application process for student-run organizations like Student Diversity Board (SDB), Residence Hall Association (RHA) and Student Activities Board (SAB). Students were elected into such positions prior to this year, Baker said.Though they both have SGA experience, Kohler said she and Baker look forward to working with Schuster and Moorhead to guide them into their new positions.Kohler said she and her partner intend to add a function to the new BelleMobile app that would track Blinky, a nightly shuttle service sponsored by Saint Mary’s Security to transport students safely around Saint Mary’s campus, as well as back and forth from the Grotto.“There’s a lot of questions that need to be asked and a lot of research to figure out how we could create such a function,” Kohler said. “I’ll have to reach out to IT and try to develop that over the summer.”Baker said they want to begin promptly on some of their larger initiatives, such as the Blinky tracker and diversity within SGA.In addition, Baker said they want to talk with security about transporting students during the day.“The issue seems to be that girls come home with groceries and luggage, and they need a little help getting from point A to point B, so maybe we can talk with security about being more available during the day,” Baker said.Kohler said she wants students to know she and Baker are interested in their concerns.“We’ve already had students reaching out with ideas, and students feel like they can communicate their wants and needs to us,” Kohler said. “ I really want students to know we are approachable.”Baker said she and Kohler hope to recruit a diverse group of students to be in their presidential cabinet.“I want to make sure minority groups are represented and reach out to some of the diverse clubs to find out what their needs are,” she said. “I want to make sure their voices are heard.”SGA added an “International Chair” to ensure the needs of all students are met, and Baker said she thinks including SGA representatives within that addition may help.“We can’t really cater to the needs of diverse students if we don’t have any diversity in SGA,” Baker said.Baker said she also wants SGA to maintain its transparency while she and her partner are in office.“In our platform, we tried to be really honest and highlight ideas we know we could work towards,” she said. “We really want to hear from students and keep Senate meetings open to students to voice their concerns.”Baker and Kohler both said they are excited for the “Big Belle, Little Belle” Program to begin next fall. The program will pair up current sophomores and juniors with incoming first-year students and give new students a guide for their first year of college and beyond.“Right now, the program is voluntary and the Office of Student Affairs is in charge,” Baker said. “We hope students will want to share their Saint Mary’s experience with new students and serve as a mentor and friend.”Kohler said, overall, the elections were a good example of friendly competition amongst classmates.“All of the candidates did a great job campaigning and getting their message out there,” Kohler said. “Now I’m really excited to meet with [the] administration and communicate our ideas and figure out what plans are already in the making.”Tags: Kaitlyn Baker, Maddie Kohler, sga, sga electionslast_img read more

Fourth-place finish successful in light of midseason struggles

first_imgMEGHAN CONLIN/Herald photoIOWA CITY, Iowa — Not all the events of Saturday afternoon worked against Wisconsin. Even though the Badgers fell hard to Iowa here, the team locked up a bye in the Big Ten tournament, which gets underway in Indianapolis Thursday.By virtue of Illinois’ 75-68 victory over Michigan State earlier in the day, the Badgers were guaranteed of finishing no worse than a tie for fourth place in the conference by tip-off of their matchup with the Hawkeyes. Wisconsin will face Indiana at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Conseco Fieldhouse. “The Big Ten tournament is just like another season, so we’ve got to worry about that and be ready,” freshman Kevin Gullikson said.The fourth-place finish for the Badgers is the first time in the Bo Ryan era that Wisconsin has finished outside of the top three in the Big Ten. However, considering the major personnel issues the team had to deal with — losing reserves Greg Stiemsma, Marcus Landry and DeAaron Williams midseason — the campaign is in many aspects a success.Players and coaches seemed satisfied with the finish, considering the hardships they endured.”It was a challenge,” junior forward Alando Tucker said. “With the loss of our players early [and after] readjusting, it was a big challenge for us. I think it made us tougher, makes us stronger … We stayed tough; I’m not disappointed in the effort we put in each night.””It is what it is,” Ryan said. “But, I’ll tell you what: We were right in the mix up until the last week, and they go on the road into the two toughest places [to play] so far this year.”After playing two games in three days, the Badgers will be given plenty of time to rest and prepare for the Hoosiers. “I still think a lot of the guys feel that we can go far, and we’re still talking about winning the Big Ten tournament,” junior point guard Kammron Taylor said.”There is still a lot of basketball to be played, if we can play the normal Wisconsin basketball game,” Tucker said. Gullikson impresses: Although the Badgers as a whole looked to be somewhat fatigued on the court against Iowa, Gullikson, a walk-on from Stillwater, Minn., looked anything but. Statistically Gullikson only pulled down four rebounds and fouled out in 21 minutes, but his defense on Big Ten Player of the Year candidate Greg Brunner was impressive.”You look at Kevin Gullikson out there working, and what he is doing defensively; he has been so impressive with his energy,” Ryan said. “I think if you asked Brunner, he’d probably tell you the same thing. Gullikson did a heck of a job.”True to Ryan’s words, Gullikson did draw the attention of Brunner”I don’t remember having played against him at their place, and he isn’t someone you would forget,” Brunner said after the game, icing his right ankle that he injured late in the game, forcing his early exit. “He was physical, he played hard. He’s a tough guy.”Ohio State wraps up Big Ten title: On Sunday afternoon Ohio State put the finishing touches on its first regular season Big Ten championship since the 2001-2002 season and its first out-right conference title in 14 years.The Big Ten’s top team played at home against the last-place unit in the conference, and the results were, as one might expect, an Ohio State thrashing, as the Buckeyes cruised to a 76-57 victory over the Boilermakers.The win came on Senior Day and was the final home game for four Buckeye starters, Terence Dials, Je’Kel Foster, J.J. Sullinger and Matt Sylvester.Purdue finished the regular season 0-12 on the road.last_img read more
