Sarman will focus on accessibility as student president
Union High School grad also on OSU trustee board
The words of Taylor Sarman carry a lot more weight now than they did six weeks ago.
Sarman, a 2012 Union High School graduate, is now representing more than 22,000 students as Oregon State University’s newly elected student body president.
“It is nice to get the opportunity to serve as their voice,” said the junior, who has been OSU’s student body president since June 1 and is spending his summer in Corvallis.
His goals as president include making college as accessible as possible for the greatest number of students. Sarman is striving to work hard to keep tuition as low as possible.
“I want to help make tuition as affordable as possible so everyone can have access to college regardless of their financial class,” Sarman said.
The new student body president also wants to take steps to ensure that students with physical challenges have access to all buildings on campus.
“We want to help anyone with mobility issues overcome barriers,” Sarman said.
Boosting student safety is another of Sarman’s objectives.
