brianne vandyke, vice chaIr
Brianne is a sophomore studying Organizational Studies. She is incredibly excited and honored to be the Vice Chair of College Democrats. She was initially drawn to this organization because of her interest in democratic politics. Her experience in Dems has reflected not only that interest but also many more. Being a member in this organization has allowed her to meet interesting and engaging people (many of whom are her closest friends), engage in social activism and community organizing, and expand my knowledge of democratic issues. She finds plenty of intersections between classroom content and the issues addressed by Dems, which is one of her favorite parts about being a member! She is excited for the upcoming term and the opportunity to serve the organization. Please feel free to contact her with any questions/comments/concerns!
