Meeting Time: SP 2021 hours coming soon!


Kristen Cadham (she/her)

Hi! My name is Kristen Cadham, and I am the president of the Class of 2024. I am from Woodbury, Minnesota which isn’t as bad of a drive to Allegheny as one might think. I want to double major in Political Science and History while minoring in Community and Justice Studies. I love volunteering and I plan on helping Allegheny as much as I can. On-campus, I am involved in the GSA Club, work in the International Admissions Office as a ZeeMee Influencer, and I am on the Major Events Committee for ASG. Likewise, I also have an internship with a politician back in Minnesota. Some of my biggest goals are to help create an online club/events calendar or Instagram page, foster a better relationship with Campus Security so we can connect them to apps such as Noonlight, and support student’s mental health by building safe support groups for them. My Instagram is blue_sky4ever, feel free to reach out anytime. I would love to hear your ideas! Thank you!
