Hi! My name is Ben Stracuzzi and I am a senior, an environmental science major as well as the Nazareth College Undergraduate Association President. As the UA President, my primary duty is to ensure students are enjoying life on campus as much as possible. Whether this relates to the food at the dining halls, the UA’s variety of clubs, or academic affairs I am the student representative in charge of implementing the changes that students want to see. This is carried out by chairing the Student Affairs Committee, Food Council, and the Presidents’ Council which provides outlets for many student concerns and suggestions to be raised from all facets of campus life. In addition, I also work with the other members of the Executive Board and Senate to plan campus events and oversee the Undergraduate Association as a whole. I am looking forward to working with all students, faculty, and staff to make this year at Nazareth College a successful and fun one.
