Student Body President
I’m Pam Armas, a Political Science Major with double minor in Psychology and Studio Art. With Law School hopefully in the future, my interested field of study lies in development programs that increase access to quality education in Latin America. This summer, I had the incredible opportunity of interning for the New York State Senate. I am currently a manager within the Student Activities office, as well as serve on Tri Sigma’s Philanthropy Committee. Our main project of the semester has been creating a mentorship program with Liberty Partnership. Highlighting the importance of giving back to the community, we are creating baskets for Mel’s Place Homeless shelter with the Poughkeepsie high school students. The program is personally relevant, as I was in a similar program during elementary school. It is a large reason why I am at Marist today. Under the Center for Civic Engagement, I am a leader for Marist Votes. It is a non-partisan student lead initiative to increase voter registration and turnout for college students. During Sophomore year, I was an Event Chair for Greek Council, charged with the planning of Greek Week. With the help of my board members, we had double the turnout from the year prior, which was super exciting!
