Meet Emma Paulus, a first-year Innis student and the First-Year Off-Campus Representative on the ICSS!
Hi! My name is Emma Paulus and I am a first year student here at Innis. I am going to be majoring in religion, with a minor in Spanish and History.
At Innis, I am currently the ICSS first year commuter rep. I also write for the college paper, The Innis Herald.
The most rewarding thing about being on the ICSS is definitely getting to meet so many Innis students. Being a commuter, it can be difficult to meet new people, especially people from Innis. Being able to host events has given me the opportunity to meet so many people who I might not have been able to meet otherwise.
The most challenging part of being on the ICSS has probably been organizing our event at Ripley’s Aquarium. The event was the largest one that I and the other first year reps planned, and it took a lot of planning. The challenge was definitely worth it, though, because the event ended up going very well and we had a great turn out.
The most difficult part of running in an election for me was putting myself out there so that I could get to know people who would possibly vote for me.
Actually, the first year reps will be having our last event towards the end of the month. We are planning an event called Grind and Dine, which will have multiple components including a group study, food, and destress activities. The event will be posted on the ICSS Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to look out for it!
