My name is Ben Heller and I am a third year Professional Writing major at Champlain College. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia, which is where you can find me writing, reading, obsessing over television, political activism, or doing stand-up comedy. For the 2017-2018 academic year, I will also be a CCM Representative. My goal is to do everything I can to make students who usually wouldn’t think twice about SGA come to see it as the resource that it is. I want to facilitate events and initiatives that bring people out of the woodwork and foster a sense of disconnectedness between SGA and the greater student body. I want people to feel like they can come to us with problems that they might have thought wouldn’t be considered, and opinions that they might have thought wouldn’t be heard. Specifically in the CCM division I want to help build a sense of shared identity between disparate majors, and make sure students of all majors and grades throughout CCM have ways to network, learn, and gain value from one another.
