Ferris State University student Andrew Kalinowski takes on the role of president of student government and will serve in that capacity during the spring semester of the 2013-2014 academic year.
Kalinowski, a junior from Stevensville majoring in Professional Golf Management and Accounting, was elected last spring to serve as vice president under Erin Williams, the now former president. Kalinowski was sworn into the office of president upon the December graduation of Williams.
“I chose Andrew to take my place knowing that he would be the most experienced and the most appropriate choice to fill the role of president,” said Williams, of Macomb Township.
As a student, Kalinowski has been involved in the Asian Student Organization, Pi Kappa Delta and the Professional Golf Management Student Association. In student government, he has served as College of Business senator, diversity chair and parliamentarian.
“I am honored to have the privilege to serve as the president of student government this semester,” Kalinowski said. “Being involved in student government, I wanted to take my leadership to a new level.”
He hopes to continue to help improve student government and the campus community.
“My three goals this semester are to increase transparency, collaboration and the impact of student government,” Kalinowski said during his presidential transition speech. “I would like to see student government make its weakest qualities into its strongest attributes.”
