On September 1, Student Government (SG) Vice
President Matt Danna took over for SG President
Ed Wolf as Acting President of SG. Filling in for
Danna is Emily Hughes, SG Women’s Senator
and President Pro Tempore of the Senate.
Both successions of office comply with the bylaws
of the Student Government Constitution
(Article II, Section 6).
Wolf is on co-op this Fall and unable to be at
RIT. Danna will serve as Acting President until
the beginning of winter quarter on December 1,
when Wolf will resume his role as president.
Wolf prepared Danna for the role over the course
of the summer and during freshmen orientation.
“Matt has a strong and proven leadership ability.
I am more than confident that he will do a good
job filling in for me, and already he and Emily
are off to a great start,” said Wolf.
As Acting President, Danna has full control of
the day-to-day Student Government operations
and checks in with Wolf weekly to discuss the
changes they plan to implement at RIT.
“With the dorms being beyond overcrowded and
some major parking and transportation issues…
I hope we can start resolving these issues right
away before they turn into major problems,”
Danna also hopes to address issues of the lack
of school pride and indifference towards RIT
that is apparent in the majority of the student
population. According to Danna, “students feel
this way because of their just-average student
He believes much necessary information is not
communicated to the average student. “At the
end of their tenure here at RIT, they have a lot of
frustrations and those relate to a mere mediocre
student experience,” said Danna. “I hope we
can pay close attention to our current issues on
campus as well as our foreseeable future concerns.”
