ASUR President, Jake Funk
Bulldogs! My name is Jake Funk and I have the privilege of serving as the
President of the Associated Students of the University of Redlands (ASUR) for
the 2015-2016 academic year. I am senior from Fremont, CA and I am studying
political science and economics. As your journey at the University begins, and
I begin the closing of mine, I find myself thinking back to everything I have
gotten out of Redlands. Academically, the genuine care from professors and
administrators has guided me through some life changing courses. Through my
involvements in student government, athletics, clubs, and organizations, I have
befriended countless numbers of my peers. Students at the U of R come from
diverse backgrounds with life experiences that are unique to them alone. They
have taught me just as much as any professor in a classroom, and I hope that
you have the same experiences with the many new friends you will make.
question is: how do you make these friends? How do you experience the great
opportunities that Redlands has to offer? The answer is simple. Get involved.
We have over 100 clubs and organizations on campus that you can get involved
in. Join a Greek or Diversity siblinghood; go on an adventure trip with Outdoor
Programs or keep calm and meditate in our meditation room. We have plenty of
community service opportunities and plenty of outlets to just have fun. And if
there isn’t a club that suits your fancy, just come up to SLIC, the Student
Leadership and Involvement Center (2nd floor Hunsaker), and we will
help you start one of your own. As long as you take the initiative, we will
meet you half way. We want you to feel at home, because this will be your home
for the next four years.
elected to be a resource for you all. So, anytime you have questions, or
conflicts, if you need advice or support, I’m here for you. My job is to help
make this year unforgettable for the student body. I’m sure that we can
accomplish this together. The ASUR President and Vice President’s office is in
SLIC along with the offices and workspace for student government and clubs and
organizations. Our door is always open for you.
