This week Her Campus OSU had the chance to sit down with the driven and determined Andrew Jackson. I met with Jackson just after his meeting with his campaign team for Abby and Abby, who are running for Undergraduate Student Government (USG) president and vice president positions.
Name: Andrew Jackson
Major: Political Science and Spanish
Hometown: Mt. Gilead, Ohio
HC: What all are you involved in here at OSU?
AJ: I’m involved in College Democrats, National Residence Hall Honorary and Siebert Hall Activities Council. I am also highly involved in Undergraduate Student Government, at this moment I am part of the campaign team for Abby and Abby, where I am running for South Campus Senator.
HC: What policy changes do you wish to make if elected south campus senator?
AJ: Abby and Abby have a great plan to allow blocks to roll over to your following semesters. I think this plan will benefit not only residences of south campus, but all campus residents as well.
HC: If elected, what are some new policies that your team will push into action that you’re most excited about?
AJ: We want to require incoming freshman to take a first year success series that teaches at least one class on consent laws and sexual assault prevention.
All policies for Abby and Abby’s campaign can be found at Voteabbyandabby.com
HC: If elected, how will your involvement impact OSU’s student body as a whole?
AJ: I hope to bring better policies to not only south campus, but all areas of OSU. I know these policies will better the education and lives of Ohio State students.
HC: What has been your favorite part of being a member of this campaign thus far?
AJ: I have enjoyed making new friendships with my campaign members, while creating long lasting memories that will provide me with experience for the future.
HC: What are your future plans?
AJ: I plan to go to law school for Human Rights Law and eventually run for public office.
