My name is Ayoub Mohammed, and I am a junior studying political science. I am running for SG president on the Labor ticket. The main reason I am running is that, as a former student worker for Chartwells, I saw firsthand the mistreatment and discrimination against international students and felt compelled to act because no one else would. Another reason I am running is that Student Government has remained invisible to the eyes of the average student at UT Dallas. With voter turnout hovering around seven percent and poor visibility, SG is representing itself and not the student body. I am fighting for the rights of student workers, SG visibility, and more transparency at the administrative level. I am not here to pad my resume; I am here to speak for every student and promise to put the interests of the student body over my own.
Thank you for voting
Executive Office Winners
I am Trevor Schmaeling, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering. As a current Student Government senator, I have had the privilege and opportunity to have conversations with fellow students. I have listened to their issues and concerns. One of those concerns is the feeling that student voices aren’t being heard, and that is why I have decided to run as president on the Tier One ticket. I want to ensure that all students are represented and their voices are heard. Vote Tier One because your voice matters.
I am a senior majoring in neuroscience. Aside from SG, I have been involved on campus with Delta Zeta and Model United Nations, and I am part of the CV Honors College. SG has been a part of my life since my freshman year. I’ve had the privilege of watching the organization grow along with the university, and I have seen firsthand the amazing projects SG does, whether publicized or behind the scenes. As I look back on my time in college, I know that being a part of SG has shaped my experience in developing leadership skills, my communication and teamwork, and introduced me to new friends. I want to give back to the community and SG in the most impactful way by running for president. From serving as both a senator and executive committee member, I am coming into this position with extensive knowledge about the organization and fresh ideas to impact campus and change SG as a whole. I am honored to be running as president and hope to ignite lasting and foundational change that will benefit students for years to come.
My name is Hope Cory, and I’m a rising senior majoring in public affairs. I’m running for SG vice president. As a transfer student, I see the need for better and equal representation for transfer and non-traditional students in Student Government. As a former community college student government president, I want all students to feel like they have a voice. When you vote for Tier One, you are ensuring that your voice will be heard, no matter who you are or the path you took to get to UT Dallas.
Hello Comets, I am a rising junior computer science major, and am currently serving on Student Government as a member of the Legislative Affairs Committee. I work with committees and on projects to make sure that as many students as possible are getting the most out of their experience. Through my work with the Boy Scouts of America, I have dedicated my life to the service of others. I hope to bring that joy into the lives of Comets as your next vice president. Thank you for the consideration, and I look forward to working with you.
As a rising senior in mathematics, I have been involved in SG and CV Honors since my freshman year and Ultimate Frisbee since my sophomore year. I’ve become more familiar with SG as my time at UT Dallas has gone on, and I’ve enjoyed growing along with SG. Much of the work Student Government does is unsung to the majority of UT Dallas’ population. The frustrations of the presidents and vice presidents of the last few years are often clear to casual observers. I want to change that by building a foundation for future, lasting change that makes the president or vice president’s job easier. I want to perform the support role of vice president to its highest potential and pave the way for senators to bring forth their ideas. I want to give back to the organization that has given so much direction to me, keep the passion in new senators alive, and improve the relationship between the student body and administration. Student Government should change as our university does, and I feel I’m in the best position to help make that happen.
