What attracted you to the DMC? (i.e. community, friends, food, loving environment) *
The DMC is one of the first buildings I stepped foot in when I first visited the campus and has been an important building to me throughout my time at Hamilton. The space created by the staff and also students who care about their community, is truly phenomenal and I am grateful that we have the DMC here on campus.

What does social change mean to you?
Social change means making an impact that will positively affect others in the future. In terms of college, there is an added significance of leaving a legacy that will continue long after you have graduated. I plan to fulfill that change at the DMC, by being a resource to my fellow peers and sharing the knowledge and resources I have learned as an upperclassman.

What was your favorite part about today? (it could be absolutely anything)

Since my freshman year, the DMC has always been a place that I could use to relax, hang out with friends, watch movies, and connect with unfamiliar faces.

What does social change mean to you?
Social change is constantly and consistently working to improve culture into the world we envision in the future. I intend to work on better environmental practices such as limiting the use of single-use plastic and to overall reinforce a space of inclusivity.

I thought today was going to be a horrible day, but today was an amazing day.

What attracted you to the DMC? (i.e. community, friends, food, loving environment) *
The opportunity to get a job on campus and the feeling of being at home when I’m at the DMC with my friends.

What does social change mean to you?
One form if social change is change in language selection and use. At the DMC, I want to contribute to that change by having open and honest conversations with people who come though, keeping in mind the general motive to learn.

What was your favorite part about today? (it could be absolutely anything)
I took a nap.

What attracted you to the DMC? (i.e. community, friends, food, loving environment) *
For me the DMC is a space where anyone can go hang out at any time of the day and just de-stress. It is a definitely a place on campus where students can feel at home.

What does social change mean to you?
To me social change means that students are open to hear about the needs of other students. It also means that students are willing to do things differently at Hamilton so that every student feels included. I hope to facilitate this change by being a voice for students who want change to happen on campus and who have had ideas to make this campus a better place, but haven't had the chance to express those ideas.

What was your favorite part about today? (it could be absolutely anything)
My favorite part of today was the SUN BEING OUT! Sadly, the weather will not be like this much longer.
