Claire Monahan '20 and Noelle Guerrera '21 have been elected FUSA president and vice president for 2019-20.

“It feels amazing to win the FUSA election,” said Vice President-Elect Guerrera. “Claire and I know it means a lot of hard work ahead, but we are committed, dedicated, and eager to start serving. All of the other tickets ran a great campaign and had amazing plans, so I think that really inspires us to want to work harder.” The pair won the FUSA election in a very close race, with only 12 votes separating them from their opponents.

The newly elected president and vice president are very familiar with the inner workings of the FUSA office. President-elect Monahan, a politics major and news editor at The Mirror, currently serves as chief justice of the FUSA Court. As chief justice, she has been responsible for administering the elections to make sure that the student voice is heard.

Also serving on FUSA, Guerrera, a politics and economics double major, has held a seat on FUSA Senate for the past two years. As a first year student, she served as a 2021 class senator, and currently she serves as speaker of the senate, where she presides over bi-weekly Senate meetings.

The duo used the acronym STAGS to express what they are hoping to achieve for their upcoming term: Student rights advocacy, Technology, Academics, Great fall concert, and Sustainability. They hope to foster a more welcoming campus climate, modernize technology across campus, renovate academic buildings, improve the registration process, make sure students’ opinions are heard when deciding a Fall Concert performer, and protect the quality and integrity of the campus environment. They ran on the tagline “Noelle and Claire, always there!”

Monahan said, “We hope to incorporate more student feedback into the amazing work FUSA does. I hope that as president, students feel they can come to me with any concerns or ideas they have about how to improve the student experience at Fairfield. Noelle and I are both really eager to listen to what students see as the future of Fairfield.”

Guerrera expressed high hopes for the upcoming school year, “Our main focus is to create more open communication with the students so we can receive meaningful feedback about the events that FUSA runs. We want to continue to make sure that the students who are on FUSA feel supported, as they do amazing things for the student body.”
