Senator Jacob Stevens, representing the Masters of Computer Science Students, resigned at the last senate meeting. The announcement comes only a week after Senator Roberto Sardinha, the electrical engineering representative resigned.
Senator Stevens was involved in the Audit and Budget Committee (ABC).
“Everyone was wonderful,” said Stevens about his SGA “family.” But he relented that he needed to keep his future career in mind.
Stevens cited a university limitation limiting the number of jobs a student can hold to two. In addition to being a graduate research assistant, Stevens will be taking a cybersecurity job, which he feels would benefit his career. Being a Senator is also a university job.
Stevens agreed that if he were to be a graduate assistant, student, senator, and a cybersecurity worker, “that would be overwhelming.”
“I didn’t do as much as I wanted,” Stevens reflected. “I think that the accomplishments will come from what the SGA will bring this session.”
