Meet Megan Mikulich '14
Megan Mikulich '14 gives a new student a high five before the 2013 Opening Convocation.
Megan Mikulich ’14 has always been a leader, and she’s ready to take on the challenge of being the 2013-2014 ASUR President.
“I love this University more than anything else,” she said. “I love this community, and I want to see it grow and expand. I want to give back to the community that has given me so much.”
A native of Las Vegas, Mikulich was involved with student government in high school, and “took a class and fell in love with learning about others and their leadership styles,” she said. When it came time to look for a college, she knew she wanted to be fairly close to home, and also at a place where she could take an active role in various organizations. Since coming to Redlands, she’s been part of the Class of 2014 Society, Delta Kappa Psi and ASUR, serving as social affairs executive director last year.
“Being involved was very dear to me in high school, and I wanted to be involved in this community,” she said.
As ASUR president, Mikulich is looking forward to working with students, faculty, and administrators to better the University.
“I definitely have some nerves, but it’s exciting to be a voice for students,” she said. “I’ll be able to take ideas and concerns and things we want to see happen to the administration, and let them know what students are thinking.”
Everyone is welcome to visit Mikulich in her office, on the second floor of Hunsaker Center in SLIC.
“My door is always open,” she said. “I want students to tell us what is going wrong and what they want changed, or what they love. I have office hours, but I’m also going to be walking around and mingling.”
Her goals this year include increasing school spirit and the number of community service events held on campus, and connecting with more student groups.
“I’ll be working with the ASUR cabinet members, because there is so much more we can do,” Mikulich said. “I want to be able to reach outside of the box and try things others haven’t tried before.”
An environmental business major and religious studies minor, Mikulich is contemplating what to do once her time at Redlands is over. She is interested in higher education and corporate sustainability and plans on applying to grad schools, but for now she is focusing on enjoying her senior year.
“This is the most amazing place in the entire world, and I just want to cherish the time I have,” she said.
