Co-President: Ellie Batchelder

Kittery Point, ME

Hi everyone! My name is Ellie Batchelder and I am a Co-President for the Class of 2022. I’m from Kittery Point, Maine (super southern Maine) but went to Holderness School in central New Hampshire so I love cold and snowy winters! Besides being apart of SGA, I am an Environmental Policy/Government double major, I am on the Colby Track & Field Team, part of the FemAlliance, in the Colby Symphony Orchestra, and I am a Research Assitant in the Gov Department. Outside of Colby, I’m a fan of all things ocean-related (everything from sailing to SCUBA diving), and I also love to ski, travel, and watch a good sunset. I am so excited to be on SGA again this year and to continue to get to know the Colby community!

Co-President: Lukas Alexander

Newton, MA

Hey everyone!  My name is Lukas Alexander and I am a Co-President for the Class of 2022.  I am thrilled to be representing such an amazing and enthusiastic class. At Colby, I am a Government and Religious Studies double major.  Outside of the classroom, I am part of the Goldfarb Center, host a radio show and love spending time in my favorite dining hall, Dana. Having been a Feb Frosh, I am excited to spend my first fall semester on Mayflower Hill and have the opportunity to experience Maine at this time of the year.  This year, I am excited to collaborate with all of you to have some incredible class events, start new initiatives on campus and make lasting positive changes. Go Mules!

Senator: Nena Burgess
Houston, Texas

Hi y’all! My name is Nena Burgess and I am so happy to represent the Class of 2022 as your Senator! I’m originally from Milwaukee, WI, but Houston, Texas is my home *VOTE BETO FOR SENATE*.  More about me though, I am a Posse Scholar and first-generation college student. I have always been very passionate about public speaking and I love a nice suit. At Colby, I plan on double majoring Global Studies and Environmental Policy, becoming active in various volunteer groups, and serving on the SGA transportation working group and publicity and community engagement committees. Throughout this year, I hope to make people feel heard and inspire more first-generation and people of color to be a part of Student Government and establish a profound presence at Colby! Please feel free to reach out to me with any concerns, questions, or even if you just want to talk, I’m open to grabbing a meal at all three dining halls! My email is but you can normally find me in Dana by the fry or ice cream station when I’m not drowning in my Biology textbook. It’s lit!

Senator: Georgia Freeland

Boston, MA

Well hello there. I’m Georgia Freeland and I am one of the Class of 2022 Senators! I am a rare breed at Colby in the fact that I am actually from Boston Boston (not 40 minutes outside of Boston). Here at Colby, I major in psychology with a minor in managerial economics. When I am not in SGA, you could find me at CCAK, at sugarloaf skiing and/or thinking about skiing, or at ultimate frisbee practice trying to throw a frisbee. I joined SGA to try and bring some more fun and inclusivity to the Colby campus through unique and engaging social events. I am a very unintimidating person at 5”0, so make sure you come up and say hi. I am looking forward to an awesome year with you guys.


Senator: Laura Powell

Scarborough, ME

Hi everyone, my name is Laura Powell and I am a Class of 2022 senator. I am from Scarborough, Maine which is about ten minutes from Portland. Here at Colby I am a COOT leader, a member of the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the softball team. I am a Government and Economics double major with a minor in Environmental Studies. Some of my favorite activities and hobbies include playing softball and volleyball, running, hiking, skiing, and rock climbing. This year on SGA I want to continue to work with various student and athletic groups and teams to work on bridging the gap between athletes and non-athletes. Additionally, I hope to see SGA as a whole make positive changes to our community so that we can overcome prominent issues on campus.
