Gibbons and Strang Win FUSA Election

Cara Gibbons ’18 and Molly Strang ’18 have been elected to be the 2017-2018 FUSA President and Vice President.

“Being elected as the 2017-2018 FUSA VP is a great honor. Thinking back to my first year here at Fairfield, I never thought that I would be in this position today. I am extremely thankful and excited to get started,” Strang said.

This, however, will not be the duo’s first time working in the FUSA office. Gibbons, a nursing major, who currently serves as the speaker of the FUSA Senate prior to the election and started in FUSA as a class senator.

Serving on a different branch of FUSA, Strang, a psychology major, worked as the director of the Programming Board this year. As the Director, she is responsible for leading the FUSA Programming Board in providing programs that meets the interests of the Fairfield University Student Community including events such as Siblings Weekend, President’s Ball and Dogwoods.

Although the move to their newest positions will take some getting used to, Gibbons and Strang are prepared to put their campaign platform into action. One of their main initiatives is to create a more connected campus. Strang stated, “We both feel that with the continuation in the growth of the Fairfield Community, we as a university can do an even better job of connecting with each other. The community is what makes this university as amazing as it is. Our goal will be to connect with all students to the best of our ability. “

Gibbons and Strang have high hopes for the 2017-2018 term as president and vice president. “As students ourselves we understand how complicated college life can be. We plan to be open to questions, concerns and ideas from the student body as a whole. Not only that but we are here for the students as a listening ear. Our goal is to be approachable figures for the both the duration of our term in office and out of office.”
