Student Senate President Marcus Rodriguez

Westfield, MA


Liberal Arts

Favorite class:

Introduction to Political Science with Mark Clinton

Meaningful encounters at HCC:

Being elected to the Student Senate and being allowed to serve as the first autistic Student Senate president. I've learned a lot about what it means to be a student leader on campus.  

What is your favorite thing about HCC?

Student Activities. Not only do they hold great events, such as motivational speakers, but they also schedule field trips to Boston, New York City, and Washington D.C. It's really fun and I think the Student Activities office is one of the best places to relax.

Where are you going from here?

I plan to go to either Westfield State University or the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. My goal is to obtain my bachelor's degree in politics and history so that I might run for public office someday.
