The Otterbein student body elected two women to serve as the Otterbein University Student Government president and vice president for 2021-2022 — including the first Latinx president to lead the organization. President Joseline Martinez-Cortez ’22 and Vice President Cayla Andrick ’22 share their visions and hopes for the Otterbein community.

“We want to make sure to pay special attention to university transparency, diversity, student involvement, and mental health, as we begin to heal from the difficult pandemic semesters we’ve had recently,” Martinez-Cortez said. “Something near and dear to my heart is diversity and making sure that we are constantly working towards those goals and keeping our community accountable.”

Andrick said their team of officers is poised to achieve great things. “The combined backgrounds, as well as our willingness to meet other students in the middle, make us able to represent all of campus,” she said.
