                   Crystal Loria, Associated Students Senator
       “I heard about A.S. from my roommate w had served as the Inter
         lub ouncil secretary. Alot of the A.S. Senators and members
       C C
       encouraged me and once I became a senator it really did change my
       life for the better. Before I gained the title of A.S. Senator, my student
       involvement w A.S. made it clear that the follow semester Iing
       should run for A.S. Senator. In my college experience thus far, my A.S.
       involvement has led me to meet influential peers w have become
       great friends that I knowI w keep for years to come.”
