Student Representatives

The MSFS Student Representatives represent the interests and concerns of the MSFS student body to the leadership team. Every year, students elect four representatives from each class, plus a dual degree student to serve in these roles. Student Representatives meet monthly with the MSFS leadership team, coordinate events and activities for their classmates, communicate regularly with the student body, and support MSFS student organizations, among other responsibilities. Past representatives have designed and implemented a reorientation program for MSFS, developed a faculty advising system, and created a student-mentoring program.
