Presidential Candidates

Presidential Candidate Kimberly MarsKimberly Mars (she/her/hers)
Dyson, Political Science
Email: km09320p@pace.edu
Hello Setters! My name is Kimberly Mars and I am hoping to be your next President of the Student Government Association for the Pleasantville Campus. From the moment I stepped foot on our beautiful campus, I knew that I would want to do everything that I could to make sure that all students would enjoy their time here as much as I have. I am a rising Junior and a political science major with a passion for advocacy work. This means that if I receive the position, I will be using all resources available to ensure that BIPOC students from all walks of life feel comfortable knowing that they attend a school that will do everything that it can to support them, especially given the current racial climate of our country. For as long as I can remember I have been doing everything in my power to stand up for those who feel like their voices are not being heard and are misrepresented. I want you all to know that given the opportunity, I will do my very best to work with the rest of the Executive Board members to continue making Pace University the best possible environment that it can be, especially for students that are women of color. As a woman of color myself, I can provide insight on ways that Pace can accurately represent us more on our campus. Being your President would be the honor of a lifetime!

Dyson, Biology & English

My mission is to advocate for those who are confronted with the anxieties of speaking out and speaking up. Hearing the concerns of my peers and striving for nothing but the best is important for myself and for Pace University. I wish to promote positivity and personal development and wellness while uplifting the spirits of those attending and working at Pace University.

Judicial Board Candidates

Hi everyone! My name is Grainne McGinley (She/Her/Her’s) and I am a junior nursing major in the college of health professions and I'm interested in representing you as your ambassador! Throughout my time at Pace, I have been involved in numerous clubs and organizations such as the Residence Hall Association, National Student Nurses Association, Setters Leadership Program, and much more! I really want to continue to be a voice and outlet for students and make sure y'all are being heard and your ideas are turned into actions!

Judicial Board Candidates, Sydney ReyesSydney Reyes (she/her/hers)
Dyson, Criminal Justice
Email: Sr42826p@pace.edu
As a freshman Criminal Justice Major, I believe being part of the Judicial Board will be a great way to gain experience and use my current knowledge of the criminal justice system to use. I believe I can make SGA an equal and safe environment. My experience as a leader of the Salvation Army volunteer corps and on the E Board of WPAW is beneficial in working with a team and coming up with fair conclusions. I want to be a voice for the freshmen class. There needs to be equal and fair representation for all the classes and I think having a freshman on the judicial board would give that proper representation.
