10 Things I Think I Think: Sophia Wirth

*1. I don’t want to get rid of the politics in AUSG, but I don want to try and reform it.* “We go to AU, we are one of the most politically active schools in the nation, and SG is very political organization.

10 Things I Think I Think: Sarah Preston

*1. Sophia Wirth is my guiding light.* “So, Sophia and I worked really closely this past year… she kind of took me in to help me get oriented with the organization (I had never been a part of SG before). When we created this marketing plan, she suggested run for secretary, we can get this done!
