Dorozynski, Benson to lead S.A.
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Erin Dorozynski (in front) and Cassidy Benson are president and vice president of the Student Association at SUNY Fredonia.
Erin Dorozynski and Cassidy Benson have been elected President and Vice President, respectively, for the Student Association (S.A.) at SUNY Fredonia for the 2013 spring and fall semesters. Both women have been involved in S.A. since they were freshmen.
Ms. Dorozynski is a junior Business--Economics major with a minor in Leadership Studies. She is originally from Pine Plaines, N.Y. In high school, she was involved in Student Government and continues to be comfortable in that arena at SUNY Fredonia.
Running for President was something that Dorozynski felt she had to do in order to become more involved with the students, she says. During her time as Vice President, she was able to work with student groups, but felt that she was never given the opportunity to get to know or work with students outside of a group organization. As President, Erin hopes to reach out to all Fredonia students, to help them understand what S.A. is and what they do. She hopes to make a better connection with students so they will feel more comfortable coming to her and other S.A. members for information or help.
Ms. Benson is sophomore Chemistry major from Mayville, N.Y. Like Dorozynski, she knew that she wanted to be a part of student government right away. For Benson, running for Vice President was something that she wanted to do in order to work more with student groups. Throughout her campaign, she promised to visit each organization at least once a semester. She is looking forward to getting to know the groups and wants to make recognizing groups for their special events or achievements a priority.
After Fredonia, Dorozynski hopes to attend graduate school and eventually work for either a college or a non-profit organization that helps students realize their potential to achieve their goals. Benson would like to either attend graduate school or law school.
