ABOUT

COMMUNICATIONS

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.

HE/HIS/HIM

Hi everyone, my name is Ting! I am a rising senior pursuing a dual degree in History and Political Science. Born in China and raised in Boston, I love the rich history and culture of the city.  Even now, I can't help myself for some boba adventures and food journeys throughout Boston! I also love walking through the Esplanade and the Boston Public Garden and 

I am returning for a second year as Director of Communications. I previously served in the department as a staffer and as a Communications Coordinator in the College of General Studies. I am excited to continue promoting Student Government through producing graphics, advertising, social media, press / relations, working with all the awesome members in StuGov and maintaining our newly revamped website! 

Outside of Student Government, I work as a student researcher and now serve as the Chair of Media Relations at BU Votes. I am the Editor-in-Chief of the Pre-Law Review (@buplr), Digital Creative Director of the IRR, Public Relations Chair of the Pre Law Society, and a member of a host of other organizations--such as UHA or Gaming Club. I am also an avid League of Legends / TFT player and I hope to see you on the rift (or IRL)!

 

I always want to learn more and meet new people, so feel free to reach me out on social media or say hi on campus this fall!

SHE/HER/HERS

Hi everyone, I'm Carina! I'm a senior from Connecticut majoring in Economics and Psychology and minoring in English. My StuGov journey started in freshman year as a PR committee member for CAS Student Government, and since then I've been in the Dept. of Comms for BU StuGov, where I currently serve as a Deputy Director. This year I want to be as much of a resource as possible as I watch my fellow department staffers grow & excel in their roles, as well as tackle some exciting projects!

 

Outside of StuGov, I'm on the PR Team for the Student Ambassador Program at BU's Center for Career Development & Educational Resource Center. I'm also an Editor for Her Campus and a Project & Marketing Intern at NotForgotten Operations. I love marketing, design, and good econ jokes. You can find me shopping on Newbury Street (probably too often) or "testing out" the Switch @the Target in Fenway :)

SHE/HER/HERS

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be the Assistant Director of the Communications Department for BU Student Government! My name is Farah, and I am from New York City. I am majoring in biology, minoring in public health, and on the pre-med track! Besides being a part of student government, I am also a program manager for the Community Service Center, the Chair of Community Outreach for the University Blood Initiative, an admissions ambassador, a member of BU Off Broadway, and a member of Alpha Chi Sigma (BU's chemistry fraternity) and Tri Delta. I also help conduct research at the Laboratory of Cognitive Neurobiology located at the BU Medical Campus.

 

I love to sing and read because both help me escape my sometimes very stressful reality. :) I also really enjoy exploring new places especially in Boston. I really like many of the cafes that Boston has such as Cafe Nero and Cafe Landwer. Definitely recommend both these places! I also really like Trident which is located on Newbury and this super cool place called Pink Taco which serves actual pink tacos!

 

My goals and initiatives for this year as a member of the communications department is to help improve the communication between the student government and student body. I always find that there is a gap between both, and I think it's important to help come up with creative and effective ways to bridge this gap! :)
