New semester, new student representatives. AAU departments appoint different reps, both online and onsite. Their goal is to improve communication between you, your directors/department and university. If you feel more comfortable approaching a peer about an issue you’re having at school, this a great option!
You can check out the link here to see what reps are being added to the onsite/online lists.
