The Goal of the Department of Communications is to ensure that the student body knows what is happening within the student government. Transparency and accountability are critical aspects of the Student Government; without it the foundations on which the organization is built on will be called into question. In order to make that a reality we will be having press conferences, creating and distributing flyers and posters, and will be constantly active on social media. This way, every student should find it easy to figure out what the Student Government is up to.
Hey, I'm Arin! I'm from Long Island, New York and I'm currently a junior at BU majoring in Advertising and minoring in Business Administration. I'm very passionate about exploring different creative mediums such as photography, videography, fashion, etc. Additionally, I love hiking, playing tennis, snowboarding, and everything that pertains to the outdoors! At BU, I've involved myself in multiple different clubs including being the Stylist Director for Strike Magazine, the Social Director for Delta Sigma Pi, an Art Director for AdClub, and of course being the Co-Director for the Communications Department! Outside of school, I've co-founded my own magazine as well as my own Asian Awareness Organization for AAPI individuals.
Many of my goals for Student Government this year involve efforts to increase student engagement! I hope that through my time in this position, Student Government will be able to facilitate meaningful, long-term connections with individuals across every organization on campus. This will include creating routine collaborative/interactive events with organizations both on and off campus. My vision for BU's future is a fully integrated community where students truly feel that they are a part of something bigger. I will make every effort to turn this vision into reality, and I am very excited for what's to come.

Hello guys! My name is Esther and I am a sophomore majoring in Media Science. I was born in Fort Lee, New Jersey where I grew up with my parents and brother. I then moved to Busan, South Korea -- a beautiful port city near the south of the country -- where I finished my 12 years of school. During my freshman year at BU, I was a staffer, then the Chair of Content and Advertising at BU StuGov's Communications Department.
Outside of Student Government, I am a part of WeHope Boston -- a non-profit organization that fights for women's rights, specifically those of Comfort Women. I also am a part of the social media team of WTBU News and a general member of GroupIRean. I also work as a freelance social media director and graphic designer in both the United States and South Korea. I have experience in working with dance teams and classical music ensembles/chambers.
In my free time, I love listening to Kpop and watching Kdramas. I value my Korean culture and love interacting with it at all times. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends, especially at the GSU (you will see me at the GSU almost every day)! I also support the soccer team Tottenham Hotspurs and our BU Hockey team!
I am so excited to start my first year as Co-Director and hope to meet talented, amazing people through this organization :)
