After heated elections earlier this month, residence halls welcomed their team of student leaders last week, and the new presidents shared their goals for the upcoming year with WSN.

 

John Grady, LSP sophomore, president of Second Street residence hallQ: Why did you want to be president of Second Street?
A: I really wanted to get involved this year — last year I didn’t take advantage of all the opportunities I had. I thought [being] president would be a great way to be involved and help create that close-knit community.

Q: What makes Second Street unique?
A: It’s a very small dorm and we’re out of the way of campus. It’s a great neighborhood and great people, which makes it very unique.

Q: What plans do you have for the dorm?
A: We have no huge plans as of now — we want to continue to build that sense of community. We want to get everybody involved, that’s our goal.

Q: If you were on a deserted island, what are three things you’d bring with you?
A: Three must-haves would be a grocery store, “Born This Way” the album and my older sister.

Q: What attributes will make you a great president?
A: I’m very passionate about being president, and I want to make this year the best year for everyone at Second Street.

Valerie Grafe, Steinhardt senior, president of the Senior House at 13th StreetQ: What made you interested in running for president?
A: I was programming chair for [University Hall] last year and it was a lot of fun. We did a lot of cool events, some that worked well and others that didn’t. I love programming and, since my new hall is a very small community, the president kind of does the programming. Plus I have experience from high school.

Q: What is your favorite thing about 13th Street?
A: The senior house is a new project — it’s all seniors and there are different policies. We have a really great loft that’s furnished — there’s couches, foosball tables and you can rent the room out and have friends over there. People who are over 21 can drink there. We have a small community so its not hard to meet people because you run into them all the time.

Q: If you were stuck on an island what are three things you would bring?
A: I’d bring my cell phone — my cell phone is permanently attached to me — my best friend Danny and my mom.

David Synder, CAS junior, president of University HallQ: What got you interested in running for president?
A: I was a floor rep the second half of last year — I took a very watch-and-learn approach. I attended many of the programs and got people excited to go to them. I learned that the floor reps are the backbone of the residence hall, so I felt I could take the lessons I learned and apply them to be a great president.

Q: What are the three things you would bring if you were on a deserted island?
A: I overthink this question way too much. I always want to be practical. I’d bring a genie. I’d go with an axe and the entire New York Jets football team — we would just run scrimmages everyday.

Dylan Sprouse, Gallatin freshman, president of Third Avenue North residence hall

Q: What interested you in becoming president?


A: I want to make many positive and progressive reforms to some of the building designs of Third North and South. I want to figure out questions that have been ailing me and I want to properly represent the people there and the ever-changing ideas of freshman in general. Its a great role to have, especially if its something you want to do in the future.

Q: What will be your first order of business as Third North president?


A: I want to see if we can get an easier entrance system. I don’t know the security risk of taking out the birthday code entry [on the turnstiles], but I think it takes too much time. We also need to fix the entryways — at least one on each side is broken.

Q: What do you enjoy the most about living in Third North?


A: I enjoy the community, especially on my floor. Since day one we’ve all been good friends. There are so many students here, there’s one of everything — pole vaulters, jugglers. Oddly enough we have an amateur ghost hunter on our floor.

Q: What are the perks of being president?


A: Perks are that I get a gavel and [can] bash it in meetings. No, the perks are being in the meetings and seeing everybody and hearing opinions. You get hooked in and hear complaints. It’s great practice for the future.

Q: What will make you the best president Third North has ever seen?


A: I’m not going to be too self-indulgent, but I have honesty, trust, integrity — those are very important to have in a president. I’m dedicated and I have a business background. I believe that if you want something bad enough, and if you go for it and get it­, it will make you a good man, and if not, it means that at least you have good intentions.

Q: If you were deserted on an island, what three things would you bring?


A: Three things I’d bring to an island, I’d have to say a katana, a water purifier and … do I get magical items? If I do, I’d have to say a genie lamp.

Q: What is in store for you for the future?


A: As a video game designer you want to start little and get to some position of power, but this will definitely look good on a résumé. But it will be even better because it will give me [the] experience and background I need.

Forrest Durell, Steinhardt freshman, president of Rubin residence hall

Q: What are your plans for the dorm?
A: We’re going to start with minor changes like replacing some pool balls and trying to get the piano re-tuned. My main goal is to create a living space where everyone feels welcome and basically enjoys their time.

Q: Why did you run for president?
A: I’ve never really been the president or head of anything and my goal for coming to NYU was to get involved right away. I love it so far. It gives you a sense of responsibility that’s unparalleled.

Q: What’s the biggest presidential perk?
A: The attention — literally everyone knows who I am, and they always say, “Good morning Mr. President” or something of the sort.

Q: What makes your dorm unique?
A: No air conditioning. It breeds kids who are tough as nails.

Carmiel Dizon, Stern freshman, president of Goddard Hall
Q: What are the qualities of a good leader?
A: You need passion, charisma, innovation — you need to be genuine, someone who takes initiative.

Q: Do you think being president will help you with your plans for the future?
A: The leadership will definitely assist me with my plans of continuing to be an entrepreneur in the food industry.

Q: What is your slogan?
A: “If this isn’t passion, then I don’t know what is.”

Wennie Chin, CAS sophomore, president of Lafayette residence hallQ: What prompted you to run for president?
A: Lafayette is located in downtown Manhattan, and I have very close connections there since I’m from New York City. A lot of people who lived in Lafayette might be hesitant to explore — I want to make some changes. I also plan to run for public office in the future.

Q: What activities do you enjoy outside of IRHC?
A: I’m a golfer, but I don’t have time to do it here. I’m PR chair for the Asian Heritage fund and I intern for a New York City council member in City Hall.

Q: What are your plans for Lafayette?
A: Because our building is leased they can’t give out free toilet paper, so instead we hope to sell it for five cents a roll.

Yvonne Monu, Gallatin sophomore, president of Coral Towers residence hall
Q: What prompted you to run for president?
A: I was president of Brittany last year, and it was probably the best experience of my freshman year. I was also in hall council — I liked having a say in both sectors — in my hall itself and IRHC.

Q: What does the position of president entail?
A: We’re in charge of planning and running every single hall council meeting. We have to attend every IRHC meeting every Tuesday, and we have to be part of a council on IRHC.

Q: What are your interests outside of student government?
A: My friends are making this new a capella group, so I’m going to help them with that. I enjoy long boarding and I’m a runner. Hopefully I’m going to get my yoga certification so I can be a yoga teacher.

Loren Oumarova, CAS sophomore, president of Carlyle Court residence hall
Q: What are your interests outside of student government?
A: I’m really strongly involved with the Republican core on campus. Just in terms of being a good leader and developing leadership, that’s been really instrumental.

Q: What do you have to offer to the residential community?
A: I was born and raised in Brooklyn and I went to high school right by NYU. I have a good taste of what city life is, and I think that’s really helpful for me in terms of reaching out to others and showing them what the city’s all about.

Q: What are your goals for the dorm?
A: Our main goal this year is to build a community. We have a very large hall — 750 students. We were thinking of having themed mixers where the students suggest the themes.

Yee Ting Wu, CAS sophomore, president of Gramercy Green
Q: What do you want the environment of your dorm to be like?
A: We just want to make it feel like home — get to know everyone and form this community. NYU does get ragged on a lot about for not having a community. We are all living in the same area, so we might as well get to know each other.

Q: What are your goals for Gramercy?
A: Some of our ideas are community service events, mixers, [and] seasonal events, like hot chocolate in the winter.

Q: What are your interests outside of student government?
A: I’m not in Tisch but I love singing, dancing, going to Broadway shows. I’m a part of [Asian Cultures Union]. I’m trying to start up an umbrella club next year for all the individual cultural organizations.

NYU students are pretty familiar with seeing celebrities around NYU’s campus — but not comfortable with them presiding over their living quarters. Former Disney Channel star and Gallatin freshman Dylan Sprouse is up for the challenge as he heads into his first year as president of Third North residence hall.

Q: What will be your first order of business as Third North president?

A: I want to see if we can get an easier entrance system. I don’t know the security risk of taking out the birthday code entry, but I think it takes too much time. We also need to fix the entryways — at least one on each side is broken.

Q: What is in store for you for the future?

A: Possibly business management. As a video game designer you want to start little and get to some position of power, but this will definitely look good on a resumé. But it will be even better because it will give me experience and background I need.
