Committee members, along with the Graduate and Professional Student Committee chair, will be appointed in future meetings.

“I’m incredibly excited for this year,” said Fraga. “We’re still in the beginning stages of everything and transitioning, but as soon as we have all of our committees set we want to start working on ways to help students.”

Gomez echoed Fraga’s sentiments.

“I want to help all the senators get on track and make sure we hit the ground running,” Gomez said.
