Hi Oles!

My name is Hannah and I will be serving as the Observer for the Board of Regents Student Committee this year. I am excited to represent student perspectives to the Board of Regents with the rest of my BORSC team.

This summer I spent the months of June and July living and working in St. Paul through St. Olaf’s Social Entrepreneurship Scholars program (SES). I balanced my time interning at the Union Park District Council, hanging with my roommates in the SES house, training for a half marathon and exploring the Twin Cities. In August, I went road tripping to Wyoming with my family and then enjoyed beautiful Northern Minnesota in my hometown.

The Board of Regents Student Committee (BORSC) serves as a liaison between the student body and the St. Olaf Board of Regents. Our primary purpose is to examine and express student concerns, perceptions, and interests to the Regents. The Board of Regents focuses on the long term planning for the college, so we especially aim to provide student feedback surrounding long-term topics. We meet with the Regents twice a year when they visit campus in the fall and spring.

Interested in BORSC or our meetings with the Regents? Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. Also, make sure to always submit your feedback to the Talk Box- BORSC’s major way of gauging student opinions and concerns! Look for the cute birdhouse in Fireside most days of the week. Also feel free to email me personally with questions or suggestions at fedjejoh@stolaf.edu.

See you all shortly!
