PBA Local sits down with future Student Government president Bethany Williams

Bethany Williams, incoming SG presidentPBA Local staff contributor Eileen Louissant sat down with soon-to-be president of Student Government, junior Bethany Williams, to talk about the future of Student Government and the changes she’d like to make next year. Get the exclusive inside scoop below including fun facts about Williams and why ‘The Weepies’ are really cool right now.

Who: Bethany Williams

Year: Junior

Major: History with a minor in English

Place of Origin: Bermuda

Current residence: Tampa, Florida

PBAL: What kinds of changes will you be making next year as SG President?
Williams: I really want students to see Student Government. Lately, we have been talking about having more fun events while also communicating what is going on with student suggestions. (Williams is referring to the Student Suggestion Box located in the Student Lassiter Center.)

PBAL: What do you think Student Government could have done better this year?
Williams: The main thing is letting people know what we’re doing. We would like to tell students the information we get from administration, on what’s going on at our university and why changes are being made, in a more effective manner.

PBAL: What will SG do to shed more light on what the council is doing on campus?
Williams: I think that communication is most important and unfortunately the student/faculty forums have not worked successfully. For next year, we have bounced around ideas like having random football games or slip and slides. That way when students are passing by and see all the excitement and ask, ‘who is that?’ We can say, ‘Oh, that’s student government.’ And pass out flyers on what is going on at school.

PBAL: What do you believe is your biggest accomplishment?
Williams: Well, last semester I studied at Oxford. That challenged and changed me a lot.

PBAL: How do you feel about working with PBA’s future president next year?
Williams: I’m really excited. Continue reading
