Class of 2016 // Majoring in History
Jack was born and raised in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. He is a senior history major with an emphasis in American foreign policy. When he isn’t ASWCing or in the quiet room, he enjoys spending time with friends, hiking, playing tennis, and eating.
When I came to Whitman, I had no idea that I would end up as ASWC president. I ran for Senate my first year because I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of my fellow Whitman students, and as president, I plan to continue to work toward that goal. This year, I hope to lay the foundation for expanded student involvement in major initiatives and decisions, including the initiation of a College-wide strategic planning process and the hiring of a new Provost. Additionally, I would like to continue the conversation about adopting a test-optional admissions policy and making a Whitman education more accessible to all students. All that said, however, the biggest part of my job is being responsive to student concerns, so if you have any issues that you think ASWC should address, please do not hesitate to contact me. ASWC is here to be a voice for students, and my goal is to embody and advance that mission.
