CHIEF OF STAFF
Office Hours: Mon 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Hello! My name is Sydney Steger (she/her), and I am the Chief of Staff to the President for the 2022-2023 Academic Year. I am originally from Hooksett, NH, aka the Boston area. I am a senior studying International Relations with concentrations in International Systems and World Order and Asia. I previously served as the Academic Affairs Director, and was a member of CAS Student Government. Student Government has provided me an amazing way to get involved on campus, and I am so excited to aid our Executive Board this year in that mission. Helping to carry out the FightToBU Platform is a very exciting way to end out my student government career, and I am so looking forward to this year!
Outside of Student Government, I am currently the Co-Head Delegate for the MUN@BU team, a member of all things BUIAA, and a member of the Delta Phi Epsilon international business and service fraternity. In my free time, I enjoy calligraphy, karaoke, and bullet journaling, as well as running around Boston looking for the best bagel spots! My favorite places in Boston include the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Back Bay Fens, and the New England Aquarium! On campus, you are likely to find me in the Questrom lobby or the Einstein's in the CAS basement.
CHIEF OF STAFF
CAS & SAR ’25
Office Hours: Thurs 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Hello! My name is Smaran Ramidi and I am a sophomore in CAS & Sargent along with being in the Kilachand Honors College. I am pursuing a dual degree in International Relations and Health Sciences with minors in Biology and Public Policy. I am from Powell, Ohio which is a little bit outside of Columbus.
At BU, I'm the Director of Operations for BarMUN XV and the Web Chair for the Daily Free Press. I'm also an Admissions Ambassador for BU and a CAS Dean's Host along with being involved in the IR Review, BosMUN, and Beta Psi Omega. I'm also an intern at the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts.
As a Chief of Staff I focus on helping running the Cabinet smoothly helping with general administrative work along with working with each department on their initiatives as needed. My main job is to help the Executive VP with anything she needs along with supporting Executive Board with what they're working on and decision making.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions and I can't wait for an amazing year!
The Chief of Staff works closely with the Student Body President and the Executive Vice-President to assist in fulfilling the E-Board’s vision for the current term of Student Government. As the E-Board and Cabinet execute their initiatives and events there will often be the need to complete unforeseen tasks as logistical complexities arise. The Chief of Staff is not charged with a specific set of duties in the way that Cabinet Directors are; rather, they are given enough independence to work on a diverse array of impromptu tasks on behalf of the E-Board. In this way, they are ideally suited to serve as versatile aides to the Student Body President.
