I went to an undergraduate student government booth which was located on the second floor during club hours. I do plan on participating in Baruch’s undergraduate student government during either my first or second year here. I was a member of my high school’s student government for four years and I enjoyed the leadership opportunities and qualities that I gained from my experience in the club. For my participation in student government at Baruch I would prefer to just be a member and not hold a position as I did when I was in high school. I would like to keep the management of my school work and class assignments as my top priority, over clubs such as this one. Baruch’s undergraduate student government is very active in giving the students a better college environment based on their needs and also providing the students with activities on campus. This type of organization is something that I would like to be a part of. A club such as student government is also a great way to meet new people and make new friends which in my opinion is all part of the college experience. The representative that I spoke with described to me how student government has positively impacted his college career and that he would recommend it to anyone seeking this type of school involvement. He also said that student government is one of the best ways to maximize your time academic career while enrolled in Baruch college. For example, he said that student government is an extremely optimal outlet where students can  express their own personal political ideologies in a safe, judgement free environment. After he mentioned this, I found myself more adept to joining student government. I believe that freedom to express opinion is crucial to open debate and growth as not only a student, but also as as an individual.
