Lindsey Frankel graduated from Sachem in 2009, and as soon as she entered college she jumped into the student culture at Binghamton.
Right away she applied to become the Freshmen Class Council Vice President, and got the position. The following year she applied for Sophomore Class Council President. The interview process was done by another Sachem graduate, Jared Kirschenbaum, who at the time was Student Association President. She was selected for that position as well.
Next her goal was becoming president of the Student Association (SA). This year, as a junior, Frankel is the executive assistant in the current SA President's office, a member of the student assembly, and she is chair of the Student Outreach Committee.
This month she hits the campaign trail on campus to become president of the SA.
According to Frankel, the SA at Binghamton is the most unique college student governments in the country.
“We are the only student government who runs completely adult free and the students are in charge of a $3 million dollar budget and all the responsibilities that go along with that,” Frankel said.
Elections take place March 26-27.
“I have a lot of ideas to make this University a better and more unique university than it already is,” she said. “I encourage every graduating high school student to get involved at their universities, because not only is it beneficial and looks great on a resume, but it is fun rewarding. So if anyone who is leaving Sachem to attend Binghamton University, hopefully next year you can find me in the Student Association office sitting behind the Presidents desk.”
