Ava Kopp, the Junior Class President, was elected as the new Student Body President in an uncontested race, securing 584 of the 688 votes cast. Her agenda includes enhancing the college’s social life by catering to diverse event preferences, addressing student clubs' budgetary concerns, and fostering improvements in the student experience through partnerships with various campus entities. Kopp emphasized her commitment to listening and serving the CMC student body, stating, "Part of ASCMC’s role is to facilitate campus improvements—both tangible and intangible—beginning with active listening to student voices. We aim to develop a comprehensive feedback and communication strategy this year."
