STORIES in Agriculture and Life Sciences


Barbara McBreen


Dakota Hoben is a recognized leader on campus. And it's not just because he was elected president of the Government of the Student Body. With four majors, the senior in agricultural business, international agriculture, economics and political science says he seeks out leadership opportunities to serve others. "If you want to see things change for the better you need to be involved and be in a position of influence," Hoben says. "In any leadership position it's about giving back and as GSB president it's about working for the students." The GSB position was something he pursued after a two-year stint as a GSB senator. He's lightened his student load this year to meet those duties and engage his fellow students. His campaign goals include improving access to funds for student organizations, establishing financial literacy programs and improving dead week policies to reflect the purpose of the week, which is to prepare for final exams.
