For the second year, students
had the opportunity to
give input and ask questions to
the future student leaders.
The Associated Students
of Cascades Campus council
members are hired by a committee
instead of by student
election; however, at a prehiring
forum, the campus community
had a chance to give
feedback.
The forum was created last
year to give students a voice
in the hiring process. Seven
ASCC applicants spoke at the
forum and addressed a variety
of needs facing the student
body.
Each of the seven candidates
had an opportunity to introduce
themselves and let the
forum attendees know what
their goals would be if elected
to the council.
One of the topics the candidates
were asked was how
they would better improve
relations between Central Oregon
Community College and
OSU-Cascades.
“Clubs are trying really
hard to work together; that
would bridge the gap and
[would allow] the schools to
collaborate,” said Rylea Erickson
who applied for legislative
director.
Camara Bedell-Stiles, who
applied for ASCC president,
said: “I want to have it known
that ASCC is out there in the
student body, this will improve
things and their visions
for COCC and OSU.”
In addition to discussing
how they would bridge
the gap between COCC and
OSU-Cascades, candidates
discussed increasing events
and activities on campus to
improve student involvement
and success.
Each of the candidates also
discussed helping to create a
more diverse campus as well
as increasing ASCC’s presence
in the campus community.
