On Monday, October 15, CIVIC will be electing our Freshmen Reps for the 2018-2019 school year.
What is a Freshmen Rep? What do they do? Don’t worry! All questions will be answered here and now.
Freshmen Reps have an extremely important role to play on the CIVIC e-board. They communicate with the freshman class and are in charge, in a large capacity, of outreach within the freshman class for the Spring GIM. Additionally, being a Freshmen Rep is a great way to gain an idea of how to run a club at Tufts and what it takes to be on the e-board of CIVIC in particular. Freshmen Reps will also be in charge of planning the policy challenge in the spring and, through this responsibility, will learn how to organize and advertise events, as well as help to put on one of CIVIC’s most important and complex events.
Beyond those specific duties, Freshmen Reps will help decide the weekly topic, offer perspective and advice on ways to improve the club, and become a part of the club leadership and learn about running CIVIC. Being a Freshman Rep is not the only way to be involved in the club and in the leadership, nor is it the only way to join the e-board in the future. There will be more elections in the winter and at the end of the spring semester - the only position for which you have to have served as an e-board member previously to run for is co-president.
We’re so excited about the enthusiasm we’ve seen so far and can’t wait to see what the Freshmen Reps can help us accomplish!
