Campus Champion

Her weeknights often are filled with multiple campus-related commitments, but Student Government Association (SGA) President LeighMarie Weber wouldn’t have it any other way. For two years, the speech and hearing science major has led SGA — the governing body of 60-plus student clubs — while serving on more than a dozen campus committees. And that’s in addition to a pair of internships. “It’s all just part of the job,” says the recent SUNY Chancellor’s Award recipient. All of it has prepared LeighMarie for the fall, when she begins pursuit of a master’s degree tied to student affairs administration at New York University.
