Ben Morrett

Hello! My name is Ben Morrett and I will be the Academic Senator for the College of Arts and Sciences this year. I am a junior Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology major with a minor is Business Studies. I am from a cornfield in Iowa (and am proud of it!)

This will be my first year serving on Student Senate and I am super excited. I decided to run for this position because, to put it simply, I want to serve you! I want to make Drake a better place by seeing and creating changes that need to happen on campus, but specifically, in the College of Arts and Sciences. I feel comfortable speaking with any student who has a concern. This year, a goal of mine is to create a better sense of unity and awareness in the Arts and Sciences world, but as mentioned, my focus is to help you!

Some other Drake experiences I have had include serving on the Student Activities Board, as an Orientation Leader twice, as a PMAC twice, as the Vice-President of Service and Philanthropy of my fraternity, and volunteering in the community at schools, nursing homes, and churches. I try to keep busy, but will always make time for questions or concerns. Feel free to come speak with me at my remote office hours, contact me through the Arts and Sciences Facebook page, or email me at benjamin.morrett@drake.edu.
