Co-President: Sam Lee ’20
Wellesley, MA
Hi everyone! My name is Sam Lee and I’m super pumped to be your class co-president with Matt Johnson this year! I’m from Wellesley, MA (halfway mark of the Boston Marathon woot woot), and I’m a Biology major with a concentration in cell/molecular biology.  You probably can find me in my room enjoying a jar of pickles or in Keyes helping gen chem students pound out those fun fencepost problems.  I tend to walk fast as I jet from place to place, but please do not hesitate in reaching out to me or saying hi if you see me on campus–I’d love to chat!  All in all, it’s going to be an amazing school year full of good people and good mems!  Go mules!!
Co-President: Matt Johnson ’20
Medfield, MA
Hi my name is Matt Johnson! I’m from the little town of Medfield, Massachusetts. I am involved in the frisbee club, the outing club and the mountaineering club on campus. I currently have a 254 to 387 follower to following ratio (@mdjgoalie) on Instagram and might be breaking my two year hiatus from posting soon, so hit me with a follow! Fun fact, I can’t fit my fist in my mouth despite my dentists telling me I have one of the largest mouths he’s ever seen.
Senator: Matthew Garza ’20
Weslaco, TX

Hi! My name is Matthew Garza, I’m a philosophy and government double major. I absolutely love to read and I spend way too much time on reddit. I also work in admissions as a visit intern helping out and giving tours to perspective students! I really, really, love Colby want to do as much as I can to help make it a better place if you have an idea how let me know and we can talk about it. I love meeting new people so if you see me around say hi!

Senator: Ben Freeland ’20
Boston, MA

Very few people can say that they were born and raised on a pickle farm, and neither can I. I was born in a fairly normal Massachusetts hospital on March 20th, 1997, but I don’t remember it at all. What I do remember though is having been blessed to grow up in the South End of Boston with an amazing family of 4 and a morbidly obese guinea pig (RIP Alice). 

On Campus, you can find me doing some of my favorite things… 

  • Giving tours to prospective student, their parents, and their beloved family pets 
  • Working in my position as “Student Drone Expert” in ITS
  • Running the Colby Spikeball Club with an iron fist 
  • Playing soccer on the Club Soccer team
  • Skiing on the club alpine…. wait that’s at Sugarloaf.. nvm 

I’ve gotten involved in multifarious activities at Colby, but SGA is what I’m most proud and grateful to be a part of. I love the friendly, thoughtful, and selfless people who I am lucky to work with, I love the collaborative and welcoming atmosphere within the group, and I love having the chance to make a positive difference at Colby. 

Let’s get hot chocolate sometime and talk about anything from Gossip Girl to the future of humankind. 

Senator: Willow Grinnell ’20
Camden, ME
 
Hey Colby! This is my second year as a Senator for the Class of 2020 and I’m super excited to be on SGA again.  On campus I am an Eco-Rep, work at Olin Library, and part of Sprout Scouts.  In my spare time you can find me with a cup of tea in my dorm room, running in the Arboretum, or off-campus exploring Maine with friends.
Senator: Shivani Trivedi ’20
Houston, TX
Hey Mules! My name is Shivani Trivedi and I’m a Posse Scholar from Houston, Texas! (H-town holdin’ it down whoop whoop) I’m a Religious Studies and Government double major and this is my first year on board with SGA 2020 as a class senator. On campus, I volunteer with Hardy Girls Healthy Women once a week, I’m a part of the Pugh Community (you can find me there literally any time of the day), I work at the front desk of Olin Library, and I am super excited to be a part of the new South Asian Society club this year! Fun fact: Whenever I’m not at my off campus crib, you can find me on campus with a big blue water bottle in my hand, and this year I’ve added a purple bottle to my collection, so be on the lookout! Please feel free to stop me and say hi if you see me, I LOVE meeting new people and I’d love to get to know everyone in our class!
