Hello Bobcats! My name is Stacey Ascencio. I am a third-year Political Science Major with a minor in Economics. I decided to become a Senator-at-Large because I heard the frustration that students express from the lack of academic amenities that our campus does not yet offer. My Senator project is based on improving student’s academic experiences at UC Merced that will ultimately, help raise student’s academic performance, thus raising UC Merced’s school ranking. I will do this by implementing amenities that our fellow UC’s have provided their students with. Features which have proven to enhance student academic performance. Such services include having a 24-hour library, offering students noise canceling headphone, and adding more buses to CatTracks. My goal as your Senator is to make sure every student has the tools necessary to be academically successful. Apart from the elements I mentioned above, I would love to hear what you feel our campus is missing. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to contact me during my office hours every Wednesday from 1:00pm-2:00pm at the Lantern. As your Senator, I will put all my effort into making UC Merced the school you deserve. Thank you for allowing me to serve you for the 2017-2018 academic year!
Office Hours: Wednesdays 1:00pm-2:00pm in the Lantern.
