My name is Andrew George; I am a junior, Biology major (general option), aspiring to be a pediatric surgeon following medical school. I am a Biology 110 Teaching Assistant here at Penn State and have represented the student body from September ’15 to the current date within UPUA, and hope to continue to do so moving forth within my time here at University Park. My hometown is Phoenixville, PA, where I hope to remain relatively close to while attending medical school following graduation in May of 2018.
- Expand fitness facility hours of operation and resources available to students, including but not limited to: a greater outreach to and installment of student employees to gain experience through fitness and recreational occupations, an increase in fitness & cardio equipment, alternative forms of exercise (such as walking desks), and a broader range of facility hours of operation throughout the week.
- The inclusion of a more user-friendly system of sharps (needle) disposal throughout campus. Currently, there is a lack of sharps/biohazard disposal boxes for students (diabetics for example) requiring injections throughout the day to dispose of their used needles, posing threats to other students and staff to accidental exposure when improperly disposed of (in trash cans or other unsuitable disposal methods).
- Further expansion/extension of facility hours throughout campus during finals week, providing an environment to nurture higher level thought and small group study, aimed to enhance student performance within examinations.
