Kevin Hu

Last year, I joined the BEUB and started attending regular meetings and coming to events. After seeing what Maryelise and the rest of the board do for undergraduates and hearing stories about what classes used to be like, I have come to appreciate how course 20 has improved over the past few years. I would love to be part of the leadership in this group because feel that I would good at listening to students' suggestions and communicating them with professors. Because I have been attending board meetings for the past year, I am familiar with the projects that are currently being worked on, and I think I would do a good job seeing them come to fruition. I feel like I am qualified to run for this position because through other leadership roles (RAA, summer Resident Advisor, teaching for ESP), I have learned how to communicate well with large audiences and respond to their suggestions. I am excited for the new semester, and I hope to make course 20 more enjoyable for future course 20's.

Vice President

Ginger Yang

Coming into MIT, I didn't really have any interest in bioengineering or knew what it exactly was. However, after attending events hosted by the BE Undergraduate Board, I have decided to become a bioengineering major. I would love to become part of the BE board in order to facilitate discussion between faculty and students because I feel many students are hesitant to approach professors. Also, as bioengineering is a relatively new major at MIT, there are still definitely room for change and feedback from the students and I would like to be a part of this. Finally, having organized many different types of events through other leadership roles (ATS, MUBA, MITCE, RAA, and REX chair), I feel that I have the necessary experience to carry out the job. I am very excited and enthusiastic about becoming a course 20 major and hope that as either Vice President or Secretary of the BE Board, I will be able to share this enthusiasm with other course 20s.
