Hello, my name is Garrett Miller, and I am a first semester accounting student running to be your Eller College of Management Senator within ASUA. Since my first semester, I have been involved in the Eller Community with various programs. As a freshman, I was a member of the Eller Leadership and Integrity Training for Excellence (ELITE) program. I currently serve on the executive board of a new Eller program, Eller Impact, as the Executive Vice President. These opportunities have made me build a passion for the Eller College. As a prospective candidate, I look forward to using my passion for Eller as a way to advocate for every student within the college.
As a pre-business student, one of the things that I noticed was that Eller embodies the well-deserved nickname “Eller Island”. Part of this is due to its northern location on campus, but it is also because most pre-business students only come to McClelland Hall for advising appointments. To counteract the high turnover rate of the pre-business program, I seek to create opportunities for pre-business students to find themselves immersed in McClelland Hall and Eller from the moment they arrive on campus.
As an upper-division student, my whole life is in McClelland Hall. Aside from my on-campus job, I would not have any reason to leave “Eller Island”. If elected, I want to help reintegrate Eller in the UArizona Community. Eller does a great job at helping students shine to the outside world, and I want to help them shine to the rest of campus. I plan to create a way for Eller students to shine bright past the doors of McClelland. One way that Eller does this well is by engaging over 1,000 volunteers with Eller Make a Difference Day. I want to create more opportunities for Eller students to prove themselves to the rest of the University of Arizona.
If elected, I, Garrett Miller, will promise to be receptive to what the students of the Eller College of Management would like to see implemented, and I will strive to better the Eller experience for all students.
