"Campus is Better with Bitner, the candidate for the people!"

The key factor of my journey to the University of Dayton was the vast community aspect. Whether that be supporting our Dayton Flyers athletics to the great group of friends you make in the classroom, I loved it all. In my SGA term, I hope to impact further what it means to be a flyer and make sure that our community is one to be seen throughout Dayton.

I hope to fortify our already strong Dayton community and ensure that every voice in our community is heard. I believe an example of proactively ensuring this happens would be to send out a survey every semester to the student body asking for feedback on various topics. This could range from what our SGA is doing well to what our SGA could improve on, as well as various changes they believe would positively impact our school.
