Dan Safko is a busy man. In addition to keeping up with his double majors in management and history and his minor in theatre arts, he’s also involved in the Newman Club, various theatre productions, is a student worker in International Admission, a student representative to the Study Abroad Board, and a student representative to the Dean Search Committee.
Is if that’s not enough to fill one person’s plate, he’s now also filling a major role in Hiram’s Student Senate. “I’ve always enjoyed government, especially the role that parliamentarian plays,” Safko explains. “Vice President of Administration is the parliamentarian of Student Senate. Once I found out the Kristen (Weidus) was running for president, I knew that if we ran together that we would have a great chance. We have a wonderful relationship and she is strong in the areas where I am weak.”
Safko says that in this new role, he hopes to help students, faculty, and staff to feel ownership of Senate. “We hope to help Senate to become an integral part of administrative planning and execution. Finally, we hope to demonstrate to the community the important role that Senate plays in Hiram College,” Safko explains.
