Paymon Rouhanifard and Robert Albright, who were elected senior class president and vice president with 68.5 percent of the vote in Tuesday's runoff, said Wednesday that they are eager to begin fulfilling the goals set in their platform.
"It starts now, when we're juniors," Albright said.
Rouhanifard also expressed a desire to begin work immediately. "I'm really excited to get the ball rolling and get things going for a strong year," he said.
The main issue Rouhanifard and Albright's platform addressed was maintaining communication with members of the senior class.
"Our main job is to represent their voice and let them know what's a reality," Rouhanifard said. "We want to keep them informed at all times."
Rouhanifard also said he wants the members of the senior class to know that they can hold him and Albright accountable for all decisions made.
Albright said there will be many ways seniors can make their opinions heard next year, on topics such as the class gift and Commencement speaker selections. "We want a lot of seniors engaged in the process," he said.
Rouhanifard and Albright said they want to redefine the system of senior class marshals to establish continuity year after year and will be meeting with senior class faculty and alumni advisers in the next few days to brainstorm.
"We want to bring ideas to the table, cooperate with them and work efficiently with them to make these ideas a reality," Rouhanifard said, referring to the advisers.
