Hello, I’m Ron from Alaska! I’m a sophomore on the Student Life Committee, Campus Social Life Subcommittee, and Residential Life Subcommittee! I want to be a resource for students at Wesleyan and I constantly strive to represent the Class of 2021 to the best of my ability. As a first generation student I want to ensure that we are fostering a supportive network for marginalized students on campus including first generation, international, and LGBTQ students, as well as students of color to create a community welcoming to everyone. I am currently working on a project to implement either free laundry for low income students or to get a stipend to help alleviate the financial burden. Political engagement is critical now more than ever and I am committed to ensuring as many people on campus are registered to vote as possible. If you ever have any concerns or questions about things you would like to change feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out if you see me on campus!

Hello! My name is Joshua Cardenas, and I am a San Francisco native. I am a senior majoring in Government with a concentration in American politics. This is my first year serving on the WSA, and I will strive to the best of my ability to elevate the voices of the most marginalized groups on our campus and to aggressively hold the administration and the WSA Senate accountable to improve the quality of life for all our students. This semester I sit on the Student Budget Committee (SBC), and with this immense privilege, I hope to strengthen the SBC’s relationship with all of our student organizations and to ensure an equitable distribution of our funds to create more abundant opportunities for all of our students and to address the unmet needs of students. Among my other priorities are to achieve a “living wage” for students and to improve the relationship between Public Safety and students. You are always more than welcome to contact me with any pressing issue you would like to address, or if you ever want to discuss any other matters with me---or just grabbing coffee (email@example.com)! I am happy and grateful to have this opportunity to serve my peers, friends, and community, and I hope I can make a positive difference in our community. Outside of the WSA, I host my own radio show on WESU 88.1 FM, the Roar in Politics with DJ Politico, and I am involved in Boxing Club. On the weekends, I like to catch up of some of the most important issues and news in our country and the world, reading my favorite periodicals such as The Economist, The New Yorker, Foreign Affairs.
Hello, my name is Cameron Costanzo and I’m a sophomore from Freehold, New Jersey. I like physics and music and being involved at Wesleyan. As a member of the Student Budget Committee, I hope to finance clubs equally and fairly to accentuate the diversity of Wesleyan’s students and their interests. My favorite part of being on the WSA is being exposed to all the different students and administrators that contribute to the school. I'm also glad I get to strengthen my connection to music at Wesleyan by being the liaison to the Concert Committee.
I'm Ben Garfield, class of 2022, and I'm from Denver, Colorado. I'm so excited to have the opportunity to represent the class of '22 on the WSA this year. I come with experience as a leader in my high school, where I was in the first graduating class, and spent the last 4 years helping to build up many aspects of what our school would look like. I know that will translate into effective change as a part of the WSA. I'm also used to working with very limited budgets, and so I hope to bring those concepts of fiscal responsibility along with me with my work on the WSA.
I was born and raised in a small Indiana town. I joined the US Navy directly after graduating high school and served for 7 years as an intelligence analyst for Special Operations in support of Navy SEALs in Hawaii. After my time in the service I graduated on the Dean’s List from Paul Mitchell School with a license in cosmetology. Following work at a premier salon and spa in San Diego, I was a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines. I have since graduated from San Diego Mesa College on the Dean’s List with an associate degree in psychology. While at San Diego Mesa College, I worked as an intern for the American Federation of Teachers Guild where I was locally embedded in social and climate justice activism. Last year, I was awarded a full tuition leadership scholarship to Wesleyan University for veterans through the Posse Foundation. I am excited and very blessed to represent my peers on the WSA, for which I believe my academic and career-oriented experiences have equipped me.
I’m Adam Hickey, and as far as I can tell I’m the only Wesleyan student from Utah! I’m a freshman (prospective Government and History double-major), and I couldn’t be more excited to be serving on the WSA.

I was part of a group of students who organized a walk-out and a March for Our Lives in support of more effective gun control, as well as an organizer for a town hall event featuring candidates for the Utah State Legislature. I intend to push for further political engagement, community involvement, and accountability & transparency among Wesleyan students and administrators. If you have any concerns you want addressed by the WSA, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be sure to raise them.
