My name is Marissa and I’m an accountancy student with a minor in economics. I’m also CASA’s AVP Academic for 2018-19 and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! Having never previously been involved in student life, it took me months to figure out how things worked on the fourth floor and to observe what students really needed to succeed academically. As AVP Academic, I learned and absorbed as much information as I could this mandate, so it’s safe to say I still have many ideas for next year and I’m excited to hit the ground running!
Why should you vote for me for VP Academic of CASA? I’m going to keep this simple – EXPERIENCE. For the past 9 months, I realized that CASA’s academic profile has a lot of potential and room for growth. I’ve taken the time throughout my mandate as AVP to figure out what YOU need as well as what we are doing right now that is not working out. This has allowed me to plan and structure the academic profile in order to develop it even more for the next year. Here are 5 things I promise to implement as VP Academic of CASA JMSB:
Let’s have more academic events! Although CASA is known for organizing amazing 5 a 8s and fun parties that make a huge impact socially, I believe we can broaden the academic profile and offer more to students to make a bigger impact academically. With everything I’ve learned this year as AVP Academic, I know what I need to do. So let’s not waste any more time and let’s get this done!
Vote Marissa Yap for VP Academics – because she’s the MVP of academics.
