Rachel Yee, President
It is an honor and privilege to serve as your USG President. My vision for this year is to recognize the needs of the student body and to fill them. That means improving the way we talk about and provide resources for mental health. We need to change the narrative on campus.
This administration aims to provide an outlet for every student to tangibly serve others through USG. Additionally, we plan on reporting clear communication and engagement metrics.
Although I dropped almost all of my clubs to focus on USG this year, I previously had a brief stints on Princeton Cheerleading, Club Lacrosse, Club Fencing, and served as the Policy Advocate for the Asian American Student Association. In my spare time, I aim to promote entrepreneurship and innovation with the Company of Female Founders.
Nate Lambert, Vice President
I’m a sophomore in Forbes, majoring in the Woodrow Wilson School with a certificate in French. As Vice President this year, I am working to make USG initiatives more efficient, transparent, and effective. Through leading meetings and monitoring the progress of project teams and other subgroups, I hope to help foster a culture of respect, integrity, and accountability in the Senate. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or inquiries about our work this year.
Alison Shim, Treasurer
I'm excited to continue being a part of USG this year as the Treasurer! I'm a junior from Basking Ridge, NJ and was previously a part of Communications Committee on USG before being elected Treasurer last year. I hope to continue to be a part of making USG as representative of students as possible and strive to include students more in the discussion of how the budget is spent. Outside of USG, I'm also a PAA in Mathey, tutor at Mcgraw, and am a part of Tiger Capital Management.
Chitra Parikh, Executive Secretary
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to serve as the Executive Secretary for USG this coming year. I’m looking forward to working with Nate to oversee Senate projects that I am extremely passionate about such as mental health satellite offices and increasing USG transparency. I also hope to create detailed documentation that will preserve institutional memory for many more years to come. I’m a freshman from New Jersey. Outside of USG, I’m also involved with Naacho South Asian Dance Company and Tiger Challenge.
Olivia Ott, Academics Chair
I am honored and excited to serve as the Academics Chair for the next year. I plan to continue to raise awareness and to work to address academic issues affecting students on campus, and have plans to address a number of on-going and new initiatives on campus. I also hope to welcome new members to the Academics Committee this semester, and want to increase the academic diversity of our members. Outside of USG, I am an officer for Club Tennis, a member of TigerLaunch through the Entrepreneurship Club, and an alto with the William Trego Singers.
Liam Glass, Social Chair
My goal this year is to put my experience to work in organizing a diverse collection of events that represents the musical and artistic preferences of the student body. Having served on the Social Committee over the past two years, I am very excited to take an even more active role in bringing more music to campus and expanding the role of the Committee. On campus, I'm concentrating in Politics, pursuing a certificate in Statistics and Machine Learning, and am also a member of the Princeton Debate Panel.
Tania Bore, University Student Life Committee Chair
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you on the Student Life Committee. This year I would like to focus on how we can better identify needs of students. Though I believe we respond to different needs of the student body, we may not always do so in the most effective ways. Other times, we may neglect to respond to needs entirely. I believe this is in part linked to the lack of current available information from students on issues they face. I hope to begin taking steps to address this. Outside of USG I have been involved in different Christian fellowships and the recently renamed Six14 Dance group. Though originally from Kenya, I’ve been in Dallas Texas for the past 7 years! If you have any concerns in relation to student life, please do reach out; we want to know what’s affecting you and how we can help.
Caleb Visser, Campus and Community Affairs Chair
I am new to USG this year, but I'm bringing with me a passion for making Princeton more accessible through breaking down socio-economic and class barriers. Community building for me is intrinsically tied to service, so I hope to use my experiences serving on as a PACE PCCV councilor, SVC volunteer, SHARE peer and Army ROTC cadet to help pop the orange bubble and strengthen our ties to the greater Princeton community. I'm an undeclared member of the Class of 2020 from Williamsburg, Virginia, but I grew up moving around the US as an Army brat.
