Hailing from Medford, Ore., Megan Weems is a junior studying liberal studies and elementary education at PUC, and is next year’s incoming Student Association president. We’re looking forward to seeing her and her team’s energy and creative ideas in action.
We asked Megan a few questions about her experiences at PUC and her hopes for this upcoming year.
What are your plans for this coming school year?
Oh! Where do I even begin?! This next school year is the year for changes. My SA team and I have so many ideas/events/plans we want to implement. We envision everything already great about PUC but multiplied by 100. My team and I plan to be extremely intentional about making the students happy and encouraging PUC pride! We want to make PUC a place where fun is had, quality relationships are built, and bonds are made that will last a lifetime. #PUCFAM
What are you looking forward to the most with SA?
Family. The family in which we create within the team, that will then trickle out into to Senate, clubs, and EVERYONE. 🙂
What made you decide to run for SA president?
Truly, God put me in the right spot, at the right time. I ran for SA president because I wanted to do something a little out of my comfort zone and put myself out there. I want to be the change so, I can therefore make a change. I am so proud to be a Pioneer and I wanted to be in a position where I can facilitate change to make PUC a place everyone wants to be.
What is your favorite thing about PUC?
The people of course! We are beyond blessed here on this hill with some of the most compassionate, brilliant, and beautiful minds. I feel extremely blessed to be a part of this college community.
Why did you decide to attend PUC?
If we are being honest, PUC was not in my original plan. In fact, I was at Walla Walla University my freshman year, but something didn’t fit for me there. I was pulled by God (and my sister) to enroll at PUC and I found my niche here. I appreciate the experience I had at WWU but here at PUC is where my heart and home are.
So far, what has been your favorite class at PUC?
Any class by Tom Lee or Jim Roy. (Shout out to the department of education, woot woot!)
What was the last book you read?
“Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell.
What are some of your hobbies?
Singing, sewing, cooking, socializing, swimming, chilling, learning new things, doing anything exciting and new.
What advice would you give incoming freshmen?
GET INVOLVED and STAY INVOLVED.
How can students keep up-to-date with SA events and activities?
The PUC SA Facebook page, as well as our SA website. Stay tuned for more info!
