My name is Oscar. If you’ve spent any time around the common room this past Fall and Spring, or have been on the Discord server anytime in this past semester, you’ll probably recognize me. Even though I only started in Fall 2016, I’ve done a lot for the CSSS. I started my first semester as Exec at Large, doing odd jobs around the common room and generally making sure things ran smoothly. After the Fall, I spent my time helping the CSSS where I could while focusing on my courses. But now, I’m back.
If I’m elected to Director of Events, there are a number of things I plan to focus on. Firstly, I plan to revive the Events Committee. Once back, I’m going to leverage the committee to help bring bigger and better events to the members of the CSSS. This starts with ensuring we have consistent board games nights, as well as working to come up with new ways to make them a little more interesting. On top of board games night, my plan is to have multiple unique events each semester. Events which engage CS students in ways we’ve not had before. This includes working with David, our President, to ensure our new and improved Hacktime runs better than ever.
In case anyone may be wondering, here are a few of the events I plan to have sometime this year. Firstly, I want to make sure our yearly Hackathon is better than years past. Then I’m planning on running at least one fundraiser on top of our regular hoodie sale. Additionally, as part of my initiative to rebuild the Events Committee, I’m going to ensure the First Year Rep’s do their part and run a kickass event for all the first-years. Finally, there’s also the secret event I’m working on right now, Project Sigma Foxtrot. Anyone want to hazard a guess?
Thank you for reading my rant of a speech,
