Hi,

I am Corey T. Boone, and I want to be the next Student Body President of the Georgia Institute of Technology. Why, you ask? I’m running because I love this school and its people. I want to lead in a way that enhances the Georgia Tech Community, provides a learning environment that truly enriches lives, and proactively addresses the needs of all Georgia Tech Students.

As Student Body President, I will:

o Expand the Add/Drop Period.

o Lift Major Restrictions earlier during registration the period.

o Add a centralized platform that allows students to apply for overload requests in place on Oscar.

o Oversee the Continued Redevelopment of Course Critique

o Develop an Academic Rights and Expectations that will allow students and faculty to find common ground.

o Develop a Faculty-Student Mentoring Program.

o Review tenure to place a greater emphasis on teacher effectiveness.

o Implement a “Service Option” to be added to the curriculum of each major.

o Advocate for an i-Tunes Library of Georgia Tech’s best lecturers

o Advocate for more campus areas for students to “Hangout” on and around campus.

o Advocate for a diversity component to be added to the evaluation of all Georgia Tech faculty and staff members.

o Advocate for a revision in campus alcohol policies that allow for a Good Samaritan Provision.

o Advocate for more campus services that employ students

o Restructure the Communications Board to include a Director of Student Engagement.

o Establish a workable communications platform here at Tech that eliminates the countless emails that students receive on a daily basis.
