Co-President: Josh Brause 

New Haven, CT


Hey everyone! I’m Josh, one of the Co-Presidents for the class of 2023 this year. I’m a government major from New Haven, CT. Outside of SGA, I’m also on the board of Hillel at Colby. You can also frequently find me in Diamond as a research assistant in the government department. This year, I’m excited to continue the fight for a safe and smart drinking policy. I’m especially determined to help lead our class through the rough waters of COVID-19 in a way that puts student safety first and represents the best interests of our community. SGA is an institution devoted to students, and it serves a critical role in making sure that the administrative choices made this year reflect the voices and concerns of students. This is a challenging time, no doubt. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please reach out and make your voice heard.

Co-President: Cat Merkle

Hi Mules!! My name is Cat Merkle and I am one of the Class of 2023’s Co-Presidents. I am an Environmental Science and Education double major from Glen Rock, New Jersey. I work at the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid as a tour guide and serve on the Academic Honesty Committee as a review board member. I am a member of the Ultimate Frisbee Team, a CCAK mentor, and a Best Buddy, and also an active participant in the music scene at Colby. I sing in the Megalomaniacs a capella group and am the lead singer/rhythm guitarist of the student band, Basement Picnic. In my free time, you can find me mingling in the dining halls, eating at Jin Yuan, or studying in the Miller reading room. I can’t wait to bring my enthusiasm for Colby and dedication to enact real, positive change on campus!! Go Mules!

Senator: Jackson Rockett 

Marblehead, MA

Hey everyone! My name is Jackson Rockett and I am one of the four Senators for the Class of 2023. I am from Marblehead, MA, I live in Dana, and I am a member of the swimming and diving team. As of now, I intend on double-majoring in Government and Spanish. Beyond my work in SGA, I am also a copy editor for Outside Colby. In my free time, you will probably find me procrastinating in Miller or eating. Although I may be a relatively new face around campus, I intend on working to ensure that Colby is as exciting, transparent, innovative, proactive, and inclusive as it possibly can be. I am excited for what is to come and cannot wait to work alongside my fellow council members!
