Student Government Association (SGA) senators represent a large number of students in their respective schools and colleges. However, many of these students know nothing more than the senator’s name. This is the last edition of the SGA Senator profiles – you can find the first one here and the second one here.

Thomas C. Greene

Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism senator

Journalism senior

Greene said his personal goals for the semester are building his professional network and securing internships for the summer.

This is Greene’s second semester as senator. He became a part of SGA because he wanted to join a group that does a lot for the UNT community.

“I joined the organization to be a voice for students, tackle the issues that are important to them, and represent the Mayborn School of Journalism to the best of my ability,” he said.

Greene said his main priority with SGA this semester is scholarship awareness, because journalism students are often unaware and some scholarships go unused.

“I am currently in the process of researching several scholarships for journalism students,” he said. “Once I finish up the research, I plan on making a list of my findings to distribute to Mayborn students through tabling and social media.”

John Robert Smith

College of Music senator

Political science and communication studies senior

Even though he is not a music major, Smith believes UNT’s music program is a very notable one, which makes him attracted to the school.

Smith said one of the main reasons he ran for senator last fall was to get a coffee shop put inside the commons room. The coffee shop was what he ran his campaign on.

“There were a lot of music students who kept on asking why there wasn’t a coffee shop in the commons room,” he said. “The senator before me tried to do that, but it didn’t really work out.”

Smith said one day he would like to be an attorney. He hopes that being involved with SGA will help prepare him for that.

“I believe that getting involved with student government is the number one way to influence one’s university,” he said. “We want to help. The SGA senators are genuinely good people.”

The College of Information does not currently have a senator.
