Hello my name is Madisyn Lloyd and I am a freshman majoring in Chemical Engineering. I am from a small town called Darlington, which is located in Western Pennsylvania. Here at Penn State, I am a member of Springfield, CB’s Rookies, and the Freshmen Council in the UPUA. I love being a part of these organizations because they are dedicated to bettering the lives of others. I am also a musical junkie. I have been in six musical productions and you can often find me singing along to some of my favorite musical songs. I am very passionate about helping others and I look forward to working with many students on making Penn State the best it can be if elected.
These are three initiatives on my platform, however, I have more that I would like to tackle if elected.
- Handicap-friendly campus
- Penn State has already done a lot to try and make the campus handicap-friendly, however, there are many more improvements that can be made. One of the main improvements I would like to make is having desks that are compatible with wheelchairs in every classroom, since some classrooms on campus still have desks with connected chairs.
- Availability of school materials and other necessities for those who cannot afford them
- With this initiative, I would like to create a program that allows students who cannot afford the materials necessary to succeed in college to receive these materials for free. These materials would include textbooks, school supplies, and food. Students should not have to choose between food or school materials.
- More options for international students:
- College expenses for international students are a lot higher compared to those of in-state students, yet they have access to the least amount of resources at Penn State. Some issues these students face include scheduling, lack of housing during school breaks, as well as others.
I have none at the moment.
