Giuliana Morales

Can you introduce yourself?

Hi y’all, my name is Giuliana Morales, but everyone calls me Giuli. I am a Junior Psychology and Sociology Double Major from Chicago, Illinois.  

What are you involved in on campus?

I am a leader in many student organizations, such as the Vice President of Communications for Latinas Unidas and the Co-Captain for our Wooster Cheerleading Team. I am also in Pi Kappa, which is one of Wooster’s sororities. I am a part of other organizations too, including: FGSO (First Generation Student Organization), WOI (Women of Images), SOAN (Sociology and Anthropology Club), Woo Crew as an Orientation Leader, and others that I try to go to once in a while. I also have many campus jobs like working in Admissions as a panelist and as an Unibuddy Ambassador. I also am a Crew Member in the UnderGround.  

What are your biggest goals this year for your campus involvement?

My biggest goal is to have a voice in each organization that I am involved with. I hope that no matter what is going on in campus, people have a safe space to come and talk to not only me, but everyone in the group. I also want to leave a legacy. I want the school to view these clubs, sports, and organizations as amazing programs to be involved in and not viewed as just another club.   

What are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about helping others. I am someone who tries to push people out of their comfort zones and have people learn new things. I love learning exciting new things and showing them to people so whatever I can get my hands on, it will be shown.  

Anything you want to plug?

This Black and Gold weekend on Saturday, Sept. 25 will be a great opportunity to see the cheerleaders perform at the football game at 2:00 pm in the John P. Papp Stadium! Second Rush for Pi Kappa will be Thursday, Sept. 23 from 6:00-8:00p.m. in Luce Lounge. This Wednesday, Sept. 22 will be Latinas Unidas’ first general meeting in the Latinx Lounge, which is in the basement of Armington from 5:30-6:30pm.  

 

Sobika Thapa

Can you introduce yourself?

My name is Sobika Thapa. I am a Junior from Kathmandu, Nepal doing Computer Science and Arts.

What are you involved in on campus?

I am an RA in Armington hall, Outreach Coordinator for South Asia Committee, Treasurer for Pi Kappa, Student Advisor for EPC and Class Rep for FAN.

What are your biggest goals this year for your campus involvement?

Last year, I missed a lot of campus activities because of online learning and had a huge time difference. So this year I want to get more involved in in-person activities.

What are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about being the best version of myself, especially for me. 

Do you have any advice for the first years reading this?

Enjoy college! It is very much possible to get your schoolwork done and have fun, you just need to ace your time management skills (which a lot of people are still working on).
