Jack Craig

I’m running primarily to increase food options on campus, but also to increase the campus experience at UNF. I have a lot of food allergies, and since food allergies as a whole have become more prevalent in today’s society, I’m planning to work to increase dining options for students with food allergies. In addition, I want to help to renovate the Boathouse, and make tailgates and Party in the Plaza way more fun, to make it so people want to come to UNF in the future just by their first college tour.

One of my main goals of running for senate is to put more power into the students hands and make student government more transparent with students across campus like with matters such as informing students of all the opportunities that the senate and the school can provide for them. Also I plan on bringing better dining options to campus such as chipotle or anything else that the students want to incorporate on campus. I want to increase the funding that we put towards our scholarships and incorporate more ways to give out scholarships to people all across the Jacksonville community. And lastly I plan on incorporating a council of diversity to make this campus more diverse and inclusive amongst all races and demographics.

Mathew Myers

I want to join senate because I would like to give students their voice and make choices for our campus that would make it a better and more inclusive environment for students. There are some improvements I would especially want to see such as, improving and expanding counseling services to help students improve their mental health. As well as making changes on campus to lower our carbon footprint such as using more renewable energy sources. Every student on campus should have a voice in the changes made to the campus and should be aware of the resources offered to them and that’s why I should be in senate.
