Elijah Levine 

Email Elijah: [[e|eslevine]]

Hey everyone!

My name is Elijah Levine, and I’m excited about the honor and opportunity to serve as your Student Assembly President for the 2017-2018 school year. I’m a senior at the College majoring in English and minoring in Music. I was born just outside of New York City, in Westchester County, but soon after moved to NOVA, and went to McLean High School.  On campus, I’m usually listening to India Arie, John Coltrane, or Nas while studying at the grind. I love the Ichiban lunch special, the fact that Ewell has practice rooms with pianos open almost all day, and writing poetry. I love William & Mary because of the people I’ve met and the education I’ve received. I’m genuinely excited to go to my classes, a feeling that I never could have predicted in high school. But I know we can and must do better at addressing all students’ concerns. I’m committed to making the College a space where conversations can genuinely include marginalized voices. Do not hesitate to reach out to me with any concerns you have - if we have considerate conversations based off our diverse experiences, there’s no limit to the progress we can make.

John Hollander 

Email John: [[e|jwhollander]]

Hello! My name is John Hollander and I’m a Senior at William and Mary. I’m from Paso Robles, California and am a proud member of the class of 2018. I’m the Secretary of Health and Safety which means I oversee areas including mental, sexual, and physical health for students on campus, as well as their feelings of security and wellbeing. I’d really like to go toe-to-toe with the culture of stress on campus, and perhaps promote ways for students to study smarter, not harder. You don’t need to spend 24 hours a day in the library to get good grades. I also want students to be aware of the many options for physical activity on campus (yoga, running clubs, the gym itself, etc!) Finally, I want to work with professors to make the faculty here more receptive to legitimate mental health concerns (anxiety, insomnia) that can impact students’ performance, and give such students the flexibility they need. Other than Student Assembly, I am involved in RHA, Theatre, and HOPE on campus!
