I am the
current president of the committee and I would like to continue serving as the
president for the Lawrence Committee next year, as well. I have been a resident
of the Lawrence Apartments for 4 years. I have served as the social chair for a
year, and served as the president for the last two years. I enjoy being a part
of this committee and would like to use my experience for the upcoming
This is my
third year in Lawrence; I've previously served as the GSG Representative, and,
for the past year, the Vice-President of the Lawrence Committee. During my time
in both positions, I've worked to keep open communication lines between the
residents and the University, create opportunities for the residents to come
together, get to know each other and discuss their concerns in a friendly, open
forum, and generally keep living in Lawrence as the pleasant experience we've
all come to expect. Serving on the committee has been very rewarding, and therefore
I'd like to continue as Vice-President, and use the experience and insights
I've gained so far to further improve our community.
My name is
Burcin Cakir. I am a graduate student in Electrical Engineering, and I am
running for the position of Secretary. I joined different student
organizations, and served as an active member of one for three years during my
undergraduate study. Therefore, I have enough knowledge on the responsibilities
of a secretary on a board. I believe that I will fulfill the requirements of
the position quite successfully. As the committee secretary, my tasks
will be to record the minutes of all meetings, publish the necessary
announcement, preserve the written reports and share them with the residents of
Lawrence Apartments. I would also like to be a contact point for the
suggestions/complaints of all residents on the success of the committee, and
raise them in the meetings.
forward to helping Lawrence residents as the new secretary of the committee,
and thank you for considering my candidacy.
I am the
current the GSG Representative for the Lawrence committee and hope to continue
in this role for the upcoming year. I am also a member of the Graduate Housing
Advisory Board, representing Lawrence Apartments. I have served the Lawrence
community by voicing questions/concerns that arise to the appropriate parties.
This year I hope to encourage more dialogue with fellow residents by reaching
out during Lawrence events as well as working with the housing board to poll
and gather information which would benefit the community as a whole. I believe
in the importance of this community and good representation, and I would enjoy
continuing to represent Lawrence next year.
Hi! I'm Dan
Collins, the current Lawrence social chair, and I'm running for re-election. I
took over the empty position earlier this semester and I've already taken
charge and arranged the holiday social event. I'd love to continue to help make
the Lawrence community more vibrant. I would have a variety of events, so that
there's something for everyone:
* A super
bowl party at the beginning of next semester.
election-return watching event in the fall.
nights and movie nights.
* And more!
events like these have been a great way to meet neighbors, enjoy some food, and
have a fun time without having to go very far - so
I want to
make sure that others can do this too! I'll also look for new ways to get
community members together and to have more recreational activities around the
complex. I've loved living here at Lawrence, and I hope that I can help make it
even better for others!
My name is Joseph D'Silva,
and I am a graduate student in the electrical engineering department. I am
running for the position of social chair to improve the social activities in
the Lawrence community. If elected, I will ensure that we have fall and spring
semester barbecues and a Super Bowl pizza party. Additionally, I will work with
the GSG to secure more funding for activities suggested by Lawrence residents,
such as a wine and cheese party or a casino night. Lastly, I will campaign for
improvements to the common areas such as a Netflix account for the TV in the
common room and the addition of a pool, ping-pong, or foosball table for the
common room. I previously served as social chair of the Graduate College, which
gives me the necessary experience to make these things happen. Thank you for
considering my candidacy.
My name is
Sema. I am a fourth year PhD student in Computer Science Department. I have
been living in Lawrence community for 3 years now and I would like to
contribute to the community as much as I can. I want to declare my candidacy
for Webmaster position where I believe that my knowledge and experience
can be best used. I look forward to this opportunity to involve with the
community more and I appreciate for any votes in advance.
I am running
for webmaster of the Lawrence Committee to ensure that everyone in our
community is informed about the work of the committee and news on campus that
affects residents. I have the background and abilities to improve how the
committee communicates with residents. New campus housing policies,
weather emergencies, and lock changes are cases where the Lawrence Committee
could have provided residents with additional information about how these
changes would affect them. As a member of the Council of the Princeton
University Community, I have been involved with campus governance and
understand how policies and decisions are made on campus. My research
involves computational modeling, so I have the skills to add new features and
updates to the committee web page. I look forward to serving the Lawrence
community as webmaster.
coordinated the garden this past year. Members of the community helped me
to extended the fences and gates to prevent rabbits from entering as easily. I
also orchestrated a bulk seed order to save gardeners money, created a garden
mailing list, and am currently researching how to build cold frames for the
garden (I may start construction over the winter). I also hope to
establish communal perennial plants at some point. I love gardening, and
continuing in this role.
