Kyle Whelton & Natalie Pinkney
We have a new vision for Student Government. A belief that outreach beings and ends with contacting students outside of the office and that MUSG ought to be the biggest advocate for students, not another obstacle. We believe this race has to be about connecting with students who have felt disenfranchised and like their voice does not matter. We want to implement genuine SOF Reforms that start with contacting student organizations to provide a better service. We believe it’s time MUSG wisely invest the reserve fund around campus in projects like reusable to-go containers and new fitness equipment in the residence halls to give students their money’s worth. We believe course evaluations need to be open for students to see and that MUSG needs a strong voice to represent students during the leadership transition. This election we’re asking you to choose the difference and put your faith in us to make MUSG work for you.

MUSG Academic Senators
College of Arts & Sciences
In this position, I seek to be an active voice for the students within the college of Arts and Sciences. By being an active voice I will listen to their needs and concerns and do my best to fulfill their wishes and wants. When making decisions, I will keep my fellow peers in mind and to make the choice that will benefit them the most. As a senator, I want to make every student’s time here the best it can be. I aim to do this by campaigning and advocating the issues they want addressed. I hope to move the College of Arts and Sciences forward and to truly give students the Marquette experience.
I have served as MUSG senator for McCormick Hall and recently to the College of Arts and Sciences. I hope to continue to serve Arts and Science students through working on issues which include increasing professors’ utilization of Gradebook on D2L, working to reestablish the college’s core, as well as seeking out further student concerns.
College of Business Administration
The most important part of MUSG’s mission statement to me is the word actively. If reelected to the senate, my goals as a representative of the business school would be to increase the demographic of business students that are aware of and utilize MUSG’s resources and advocacy.
Currently, I own a website development business (ww.kretzConsulting.com), am the Treasurer for Carpenter Tower’s Hall Council, research stocks with Opis Research and have interned in multiple areas. I will use these experiences to increase MUSG efficiency and will focus on actual matters of concern to students (ie. Resolution for fixed-rate tuition).
College of Communication
As a senator for the Diederich College of Communications, I seek to truly fulfill MUSG’s mission and attend to and address students’ concerns in the most timely fashion possible. I seek to work to implement a student forum for the College of Communications to hear students’ concerns and create a culture and sense of unity within the college. The College of Communications in an amazing vehicle to meet some of the most interesting/passionate individuals, however, fellow students of the college do not share a space to truly engage with their peers outside of lecture and many but small student organizations. In addition, I look to revise advising within the college, work on the core curriculum, course evaluations, Diederich outreach, as well as MUSG’s outreach, reform, improve the SOF process, and look to increase diversity of voices within MUSG and within the college because I believe everyone has a voice and has the right to use it and be heard. Furthermore, I seek to work alongside other groups such as the student council to bring about change in the college.
Colledge of Education
As a senator for the College of Education I will represent and address the concern of all students within the College as well as the voices of all the students of Marquette. I hope to address these concerns in hopes to make Marquette a better place.
College of Engineering
As a representative of the college of engineering and Marquette University, I will make student voices heard through support of equitable organization and event funding. With all decisions, I will justify my vote by using peer opinions and the Jesuit model of service and education. GO MARQUETTE!!!
College of Health Sciences
I have served as your senator the past year and have fulfilled the duties involved with my position. I am the author of the recommendation for the establishment of an EMT course offered here on campus and hope to continue to make meaningful changes for the students in the college.
Every Marquette student, whether enrolled in the college of Health Sciences or not, deserves the best possible conditions for his/her success. As a senator, I will not only voice the opinions and concerns of the students, but also work to provide resources and opportunities for all. Marquette deserves to succeed.
College of Nursing
