Hi, I’m Wil Dunn and I am a freshman who is currently undecided, but with the intent to major in Supply Chain Management. I am from Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, which is about 20 minutes south of Pittsburgh. I have previously been involved with UPUA as a member of the Freshman Council and sat on the Academic Affairs Committee and the Governmental Affairs Committee. In addition to UPUA, I also was involved in THON; I served on the Communications Committee and took part in the special interest organization, Ohana. It’s crazy, but I never thought I’d be at Penn State, but now that I am here, I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. I would be honored to serve the students that helped make Happy Valley my new home.
Blue Light Emergency Phones
I would like to address the lack of education about and lack of emergency phones on Penn State’s campus. I would like to help increase the awareness about the phones and what they do through avenues like Stand for State and New Student Orientation. In addition, I would like to increase the presence of these emergency phones; it will create a safer campus and downtown for students at night and provide them with more direct lines of contact with the police.
Canvas is a great resource that Penn State has invested money in. It has the capability to display our grades, upload documents, and hold homework assignments. With all of these capabilities, why is it necessary for students to buy access codes and receive grades from homework on those websites? I want to work towards making sure students do not have to pay for their homework assignments and be able to get all their work done on Canvas.
More Vegetarian and Vegan Dining Options
Being vegetarian or vegan is a lifestyle that helps protect the environment and is very sustainable way of living. Yet, there are very few vegetarian options offered in Penn State dining halls. I would like to help increase the vegetarian and vegan food options at Penn State. By offering more of these options it would also help Penn State become a more sustainable university.
