Edwin Watson: Senator of Clubs and Organizations Funding Policies and Procedures
Major/Minor: Spanish/ professional biology, business administration
Why did you decide to run for the Associated Students’ Government?
I decided to run for ASG again this year because I became passionate about what I do in the Office of Student Activities. Since student organizations reside under OSA, most of my work is found there. Meeting the organizations and the events they propose to get their name out there is fascinating. The number of student organizations has grown to 60, and exceeded my expectation of at least 50. This goes to show the school is becoming more involved and I want to be part of that.
What changes would you like to see at Colorado State University-Pueblo?
The specific changes we would like to see are outlined in Revamp’s platform. In general, we are seeking to provide a safe, fun, open and attractive environment for our fellow students.
How do you or your party plan on carrying out these changes?
Revamp is a party consisting of students who you find sitting next to you in your classes. We are eager to talk to students about issues on campus and are relatable to the students, making them feel comfortable to confide in us. Every Revamp member comes from different background on campus ensuring we can relate to the whole student body. We have great working relationships with campus administration and we would able to effectively seek out solutions to issues presented to us by students.
In one sentence explain why students should vote for you.
Revamp is letting the students decide what they want on campus, which is the purpose of a student government.
Returning ASG Members
What was the most significant change you made or were involved in making during your time in ASG?
The most significant change I made or was involved in was the way students manage their organizations. With the implementation of OrgSync, communication between organizations and their campus will make being an officer effortless.
What has being involved with the ASG taught you and how can you apply that knowledge to this term?
Not only did I learn a lot about ASG as a senator, I learned a lot about myself as a person. I found a sense of pride over my work and established a strong sense of what is right and what isn’t. I no longer stand in the back waiting for someone else to find a solution to a problem. I found a voice of my own and am willing to share my voice with students and their organizations.
