Name: Brittany Godfrey
Major: Music Education
Hometown: Quakertown, Pa.
Clubs/Organizations: Vice President, Class of 2010
Why are you running for this position? I wish to work with the Senate on the Princeton campus. I feel as though Senate in itself has immense potential in shaping a student’s community. Because I have been given much in serving on the Senate and serving as the vice president of the Class of 2010, I have a continuous need to serve this remarkable school.
If you win, how do you plan to address the issue(s) you feel are important?If elected, a couple of my ideas for Westminster next year include: (1.) Princeton Choir Festival: This would involve choirs from all over the town of Princeton. The choirs may include high school choirs, church choirs, community choirs, university choirs and, of course, some of our own choirs. This would allow us all to learn from each other musically as well as being a time where we can get to know other musicians of the community. (2.) “Where Are They Now?” Forum: This would involve having WCC alumni of all ages and musical career paths to come and discuss with our students questions about life after Westminster.
What would you do if elected to foster a more harmonious relationship between the two campuses?
I will do my best to make the two campuses realize the immense potential we have as a community with this school. It is especially my wish that the students at WCC become actively involved with the students at the School of Fine and Performing Arts.
Name: Danielle Wright
Year: Graduate Student
Major: Voice Performance and Pedagogy
Hometown: Houston, Texas
Clubs/Organizations: Graduate Assistant, Opera Department; Amistad, Spoleto Chorus
Why are you running for this position? I believe I can make a difference in the lives of the students here. They all have so many ideas to improve our experiences here, and I want to make their voices heard and carry out their ideas.
What issue(s) is/are most important to you in this election? Why? Since there is no graduate housing, we have an abundance of commuters to our campus. My hope is to help provide them with outstanding, healthy food between classes and a way to relax without having to go home. I also want to strengthen the relationship between the undergraduates and graduates. We have a lot to learn from each other, and we need to support each other in our musical journeys.
If you win, how do you plan to address the issue(s) you feel are important? With constant communication with our student body, staff and faculty. The more we work as a cohesive team, the more we can accomplish to make changes.
What would you do if elected to foster a more harmonious relationship between the two campuses? Now, more than ever, with the musical theater program being based in Lawrenceville, we have a way to bring the campuses together. I would like to see us attending events on both campuses, not just our own, by starting group outings to see the shows at both campuses.
