It wasn't until my second semester that I saw a position matching the field of my major that I decided to go all in with SGA and Finance. I didn't expect to be as immersed in SGA and the school as much as I am now. I am happy to be able to help student and faculty by being a resource for all. Looking ahead, I hope more students are open to joining SGA so that we have a strong voice for our student body.

Why I joined SGA: I joined SGA to participate in the planning of activities and events on campus and to advocate for equality and proactive change. I know that many of my peers go to their classes and leave, but I strongly believe there is so much to be gained from joining in all of what MassBay has to offer. We are part of such a tight knit, accepting community, and I think we all have the potential to make a positive difference. My responsibility is to assist people in making their voices heard, so please feel free to reach out to me whenever!

Jack Newman | Senator

Office Hours: TBD


Hometown: Medfield, MA

Major: Business Administration

Why I joined SGA: I joined SGA mainly because MassBay has taught me a lot about myself as a student. As a student, I take pride in every academic endeavor I set. To be successful, you have to be determined and more extroverted. Being the person I am with a good sense of humor and academic ambition, my goal to bring to the table the Student Government Association (SGA) is a recipe for success for the MassBay Community and the students. From my perception. A student that may or may not be struggling in the community and cannot navigate for themselves and speak up for themselves should not have to feel they're alone. What I know that can benefit other students and the community is to provide better resources for every student and their success at MassBay.
