MS in Resource and Economics Program
I am an international student in my second year pursuing my master’s degree in Resource Economics. I will be graduating from the program next year during the spring semester after which I intend to pursue my PhD in UAF. I am excited to represent the Economics students and I look forward to being a part of the student advisory council.
Bobby Desrochers, Vice President
Associated Students of Business (ASB)
I was born in Auburn, WA but I consider myself Alaskan after moving up here when I was 3. I attended the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks K-12th grade, graduating in 2010 from Monroe Catholic High School. I can always be found working either at our family car dealership or as the manager at the Loose Moose Café. I enjoy playing on an intramural hockey team and racing my stock car during the summer at the Mitchell Raceway. I’m currently a junior at UAF and I am pursuing my Bachelor in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing. I am currently the president of the Associated Students of Business, as well as the chair for Business Leader of the Year. I look forward to a great year as the vice president of the 2012-2013 Student Advisory Council and being able to help make this council the best that it can be!
Students Offering Leadership Development (SOLD)
I am the current president of SOLD. My major is in History and my minor is in Marketing. Recently I joined the North Star Community Foundation board, the Northern Leadership Center Advisory Committee and now the Student Advisory Council. This past September I traveled to Washington, DC to attend the Opportunity Nation Summit 2012, a non-profit organization working with communities across the nation to ensure that the American dream stays alive. I enjoy being involved in the student community and hope to gain as much as I hope to give being a part of the Student Advisory Council.
