OCE Senator Kassie Berger My name is Kassie Berger and I am currently a senior majoring in Environmental Studies with a minor in Sustainable Development. Born and raised just 25 minutes away from campus in Sanford, Florida, I nearly overlooked Rollins as it is so close to home. However, drawn in by its beautiful campus and amazing faculty, I had no choice but to transfer. I am currently involved in EcoRollins, JUMP, Peer Mentoring, Chi Omega, and now serving as SGA representative for Office of Community Engagement. I am looking forward to spending my senior year enhancing the Rollins experience for current and future students and hope that anyone with concerns feels comfortable to voice them to me.
