Clarion, Pa.- Jarrett Coleman Boxley is a senior Strategic Communications major with a minor in Marketing at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. He is also the 2015-2016 Student Senate President, a member of Clarion’s Black Student Union as its academic retention officer, the American Advertising Federation as its treasurer, an intern in the admissions office, a tour guide and a sales associate at the local JC Penney.
Boxley has plenty of goals for senate and the university this year, including creating a better campus environment in which students may learn, study and come to know one another.
“We are in charge of representing students’ needs, concerns and providing a wide variety of services and activities to enhance the total student experience,” said Boxley.
He wants to ensure effective student representation during senate meetings, activities and functions and further cooperation and communication between students, faculty and the community.

His message to students is that these goals can only be accomplished if we have necessary student participation.
