Women's Committee

Jennifer Barnett

Jenny is a 21-year-old Social Science student completing her B.A. She is a full-time student for the first time this year and thus has more time to devote to student activities; and feels qualified to represent both part-time and full-time views.

Jenny is interested in international student affairs and has been active in religious clubs in the college, particularly the SCM. Although she has not actually been on club committees she has done a great deal of efficient work behind the scenes. Jenny would particularly like to see the cafeteria run by students.
