Hillary Thompson, Staff Writer
Junior Mariah Cox has worked hard to make an impact on her campus community. As a Secondary Education major, she is working towards a teaching career and is serving as the Senator of Education for Associated Students of Saint Martin’s University (ASSMU).
Cox talked about her majors and her overall experience at Saint Martin’s University, while also mentioning her on-campus job, as well as events she has attended with friends she had made.
“This is my third year at Saint Martin’s University. I am majoring in Secondary Education and History. Overall, my experience over the last few years has been positive. Freshman year I quickly found an on-campus job in the Registrar’s Office. It was easy, as well, to make many SMU friends with all the fun events the school held throughout the year,” said Cox.
Cox is proud of her achievements, her job, and the responsibilities that go along with it.
“This year I was voted in as ASSMU’s Senator of Education. Every Thursday I attend the ASSMU meetings and give a Senator report based on the things I did as the Senator during the week. Those things can range from conversing with and helping my constituents, having meetings with the Dean of the College of Education and Counseling, setting up and helping with school events, and more,” said Cox.
Cox loves the community that Saint Martin’s has provided to her as a student, and said that community was something that drew her to attend.
“I enjoy that it feels like everyone is a little family,” said Cox. “There are many people I know on campus, and then my smaller tight-knit group. On top of that, I enjoy our College of Education and Counseling program as I feel that it is very comprehensive and prepares you the best they can,” Cox said.
