Hi! I’m Sam, I use he/him/his pronouns, and am a senior philosophy major who is so excited to be working at the GSC again! I will also be your GSCA liaison to CSA Senate this academic year so if you have any questions about Senate or have something you want me to bring up in a meeting please feel free to reach out. I am really excited to live in Berg House this year where my housemates and I will strive to create a community space where all trans and non-binary students can feel comfortable and safe. In addition to working at the GSC I enjoy spending time with my friends, mental illness memes, LGBTQIA+ Internet culture, and trying to become Wolverine. If you want to talk to me about anything mentioned in this bio or just want to say hi, please feel free to e-mail me or come find me in the GSC!
