Meet Your Student Representatives

Representation of the disabled student population throughout campus in decision-making, administrative councils, and involvement is important to CSU and its community. Your voices are represented in the following ways:

 

ASCSU Senators

Your ASCSU Senators represent your student voice in the ASCSU Senate by voting on student-created bills, putting forth and sponsoring legislation to better the community, and collaborating with partners to enhance campus awareness and landscape for students. Your ASCSU Senators are:

ASCSU Senator: Ariadne Athey

Ariadne (she/her) is one of the two Senators for the SDC for the Associated Students of CSU. Ariadne is a semi-ambulatory wheelchair user, and is excited to make changes about the accessibility of the CSU campus!

If you see her around campus stop her and have a chat!
