STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT
HEY! My name is Oliver Pour and I am a junior in the College of Communications studying Public Relations. It is my great honor to be serving as the President of the Boston University Student Government and I am SO excited to work with YOU! I am originally from Long Island, New York but spend plenty of time over the weekends in New York City with friends!
Since the day I arrived at Boston University, I knew that this was the place for me and I decided that this incredible experience would not solely be defined on what I did inside the classroom but it would be what I got involved with outside of the classroom! A couple of organizations I am proud to be a part of on campus are TAMID Group, Alpha Epsilon Pi, the Inter-Fraternity Council, Innovate@BU, and the Entrepreneur’s Club.
In my sophomore year, I had the pleasure of serving as the President of the College of General Studies Student Government Association, where I was able to work with students, faculty, and administration to empower the greater community within the college.
Student Government isn’t only about those who hold titles within the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branches but rather it is centered around the ENTIRE student body that makes up Boston University. I chose to run for President because I would like to bring together the many unique communities on campus and give them the voice they each deserve. I believe that we all have room to grow and learn so let’s do it together, as one. I am ecstatic to see the different, unique communities across campus unite as one to continue guiding each other to grow!
Something interesting about me is that I am born on a leap year! Yes, I am technically only 5 years old :)
Please feel free to shoot me a message if you would like to talk about anything and everything. I enjoy hearing about people’s experiences and journeys to where they are today and I always love learning about the projects you are working on. I look forward to seeing you soon!
Thursday 3:30 - 4:30 P.M.
What’s up BU! My name is David Joseph, and I’m so excited to be serving as your Executive Vice President. I’m a junior in the College of Arts in Sciences majoring in economics. I’m from Winchester, Massachusetts, so Boston University has always been a part of home for me. I don’t believe in walking down Commonwealth Avenue without at least talking to 10 people, so if you see me on campus, get ready for a conversation. I’m also a musician! I can play almost any and all instruments, and I’m even the pianist at my church here in Boston.
I’m a part of TAMID, Camp Kessem, a jazz group on campus, and I’m an innovation coach. I would definitely say that I have a wide range of interests, but most importantly, I want to help people in any way that I know how. Through BUSG, I believe that I can help the most people through this platform.
Even though I’m new to student government, I’m incredibly enthusiastic about joining this year. We have so many great things planned, and our goals for this university go way beyond what is on our platform. What inspired me to join student government is this beautiful student body. I’ve seen the power that BU has when we come together as a community, and I want to keep that energy going.
Please reach out to me anytime, and don’t be shy if you see me walking down Commonwealth!
Tuesday 11:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.
Hi Terriers! My name is Nyah Jordan, and I’m a junior in the College of Communication majoring in journalism and minoring in political science. I’m from Southern Mississippi, so coming to BU was a bit of culture shock for me. I’m an avid coffee drinker, I currently reside in the Harriet E. Richards House on Bay State Road, and I served as a Dean’s Host and Peer Mentor during my time in the College of General Studies. I’m currently a writer for the Boston Political Review, and a former writer and associate editor for the Daily Free Press.
My sophomore year, I served as a senator for CGS, and I fell in love with student government. It was incredible to see so much dedication and passion from students who wanted to mold the university into something that they are proud of. This year, I want to focus on that positive energy and help keep it on working with administrators and other students to change this school for the better. My team and I are going to bring a new sense of togetherness to BU, but we can’t do that without the help of the student body.
While it sounds cheesy, my team and I wholeheartedly believe in the power of community. Community allows us to share our experiences and struggles, it helps to create stronger relationships, and it can even give us a sense of belonging. That is just a small part of what we want to achieve alongside the student body. Student government is not just for one type of person; It’s for all, and we’re here to amplify your voice.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions, if you want to join student government, or even if you just want to talk.
Tuesday 10:00 - 11:00 A.M.
VICE-PRESIDENT OF FINANCE
MEGAN DE ARMAS
Hello everyone! My name is Megan de Armas and I am a junior in Questrom looking to concentrate in accounting and information systems. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida (and before you ask, NO I do not like winter). During my time at Boston University, I have been a Questrom Peer Advisor for incoming freshmen, a member of the Philanthropy Committee in Questrom Latino, and am an active member in the Sigma Delta Tau Alpha Xi Chapter. In my free time, I love spending time with friends, trying new restaurants (I’m a HUGE foodie), or just going into the city and exploring Boston!
Towards the end of my first semester of sophomore year, my good friend reached out to me about potentially being involved in student government. Having been involved in similar activities in high school, I was really interested to see what he had to say. Coming into college, I stopped being involved in as many things as I was in high school, so I saw this as an opportunity to get back into some of my lost passions. That good friend was David Joseph, and the rest has been history. As the new Vice President of Finance, I look forward to developing efficient budgeting systems as well as increasing transparency between BU’s administration, organizations, and students.
If I’m not at the BUSG office or in class, you can probably find me in the Questrom Starbucks or on the second floor of StuVi2! I am SO excited for what this year has in store for all of us, and I can’t wait to get to know you all. Please reach out to me at any time, whether it be about something student government related or if you just want to talk!
