Jill Petersen Freshmen Senator
Hi! My name is Jill Petersen, and I'm your Freshman Senator!
I hail from a town just outside of Dallas, which is a little over 1400 miles away from Rochester. I came all this way because I wanted to experience an area of the country that wasn't Texas, and complete a degree in RIT's phenomenal industrial design program.
I love problem solving, and getting connected with the people in my community. It's why I chose to run for freshman senator; I hope that through getting in touch with my fellow classmates, I'll be able to improve RIT for the better.
This year, in particular, I want to better connect the freshman class to the multitude of resources at RIT and Rochester as a whole.
Additionally, I want to work on bettering dorm life here at RIT, as well as addressing any concerns freshmen might have, be it changing RIT dining, or relaying suggestions about how to change up YearOne.
If you have any ideas or suggestions, I would love to hear them! Shoot me an email or stop by the SG office! My office hours are Mondays from 9-11 and Wednesdays from 1-3 pm, and I love meeting new people. Hope to hear from you soon!
