Senator of The Month - February
Arianna Thornton

February Senator of the Month

Arianna, from Matteson, Illinois, is a Junior at Columbia College Chicago. She transferred to Columbia because she fell in in love with our Music Business Program. She’s majoring in Business & Entrepreneurship with a minor in Public Relations. After serving on SGA as an At-Large Senator for one semester, Ariana was recently appointed as the Business & Entrepreneurship Senator.
 
Arianna was chosen as the February Senator of the Month due to her active participation and contribution in all Senate meetings and SGA events. In addition, she volunteered for the Blood Ball committee, New Student Expo and other various student led events on campus.
 
 “I joined SGA because I wanted to join a group of like-minded individuals that shared my goal of [improving] students’ experience at Columbia College Chicago. I love being here at Columbia and I want everyone else to feel the same way!” 
- Arianna
