My name is Ben Jones-Rice. I am a born and raised Seattlite, and a third-year at SU majoring in Economics and Accounting, with a minor in International Studies. I am a dog lover with two dopey doggos named Ruby and Joey. I play on the Ultimate frisbee team and am a member of the Model United Nations club along with a few others. I have always been strongly geared toward giving back to my community and helping those around me as much as I can, in any and all ways. As an SGSU representative, I hope to advocate for students' needs, assist in the implementation of policy to better address community issues, and be someone you can count on to tell it to you straightly. Navigating university can be a difficult time and life doesn't pause, sadly, just because we want it to. I hope to be able to help navigate those stresses and ease them to the best of my ability, especially around Academics.

Hello everyone! My name is Sarah, and I was born and raised in Northern Illinois. I received my BA at Illinois Wesleyan University and taught high school Spanish and coached volleyball for 2 years before deciding to continue my education at Seattle U. During my time at IWU, I gained the passion for student development through my role as an RA and being a part of a teacher education program committed to social justice. While I loved teaching, I felt called to search for an MEd program that focused on supporting historically excluded students, and am so happy to have landed at SU. When I am not working, I like to explore new restaurants in the city or play Animal Crossing and other Switch games. I also enjoy great city views, watching/playing sports, and running a dog-sitting business with my partner. I LOVE to travel and learn about new countries and cultures!
