MUSG President and Executive Vice President

Adam Kouhel and Reba Streightiff
The time is now for real and sustainable change to improve and strengthen the Marquette experience. Striving for a more inclusive campus is a top priority for us, and our goal is to provide every student with the resources and tools available to succeed. Together, we will use our trusted leadership experience to put students first, and ensure that all of Marquette’s voices are not only heard, but empowered.

Ben Dombrowski and Allie Bitz
We’re focusing our campaign on inclusivity, involvement, and improvement for the Marquette community. Ben’s leadership within MUSG and his strength in communications equip him to head new initiatives. Allie’s expertise with student organization funding makes her an ideal candidate to oversee the program. We are college students. We are Marquette.
