Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Anjana Mahesh

Hi everyone! My name is Anjana Mahesh, and I’m one of the freshman committee members of D&I this year. On campus I am also involved with ResLife as the tower C Vice President in hall council, and I’m also the housing vice chair of FT&T at SGB. Some of my favorite things to do are: go to Milkshake Factory , chat with friends in Frick Fine Arts library, and listen to Indian music!! As a member of SGB and D&I committee I am excited to be a part of the process of making our campus a better place and making sure everyone from all walks of life feel welcome on our campus!
