    Student Government Association vice president for external affairs candidate Hillary Shepheard answered questions and discussed her platform at the 2013 SGA Debate Wednesday evening.

    If elected, Shepheard said she wants to expand the university’s internship pool, expand community service opportunities and unite the TCU community through better communication and collaboration of organizations.

    Shepheard said she also plans on making connections on TCU’s campus and beyond university perimeters.

    “When I get into office, I plan on not only focusing on Fort Worth and government officials but also businesses in Fort Worth," she said. "I really focus on reaching out to organizations on TCU’s campus.” 

    University organizations are not able to effectively communicate, Shepheard said.

    “With the approval of administration, I want to make a database or website where information is up to date,” she said.

    Shepheard said the information on the website would include how to contact organizations, who to contact, where to go to talk with someone from the organization and where and when the organization meets.

    It is important to expand the March on Campus initiative that started this semester, Shepheard said.

    “We’re going to enhance it to where we’re not only giving information to students on who to contact but we’re also making it public on what students within house are responsible for what organization,” she said.

    Shepheard said she wants to hold members of SGA accountable.
