Lakeside Apartments Committee

Secretary: Evan Ditter

Dear Lakeside Residents,

My name is Evan Ditter, and I am a third-year student in the French and Italian Department. As a Lakeside resident for over a year, I love our community, and I’d like to contribute to it by serving on the Lakeside Apartments Committee as the Secretary for the 2020-2021 academic year.

As Secretary, I would serve as a dependable liaison between Lakeside residents and the Lakeside committee. I would be an advocate for resident concerns, assuring that:

—The concerns of all Lakeside residents are transmitted to the committee with urgency and efficiency.

—Announcements and information important to the Lakeside community are circulated in the most effective and transparent manner.

—The records of concern to the Lakeside community are kept organized and accessible.

My past organizational experience in the Princeton community would serve me well as Lakeside Secretary. During the 2019-2020 academic year, I co-organized a conference for the department of French and Italian. As part of a small team of organizers, I worked closely with department staff, sponsors, and other university services to organize, finance and advertise the event. The unique challenges posed by the conference organization provided an opportunity to communicate with a wide range of individuals and effectively organize an event based on our collaboration. My experience would allow me to respond effectively to precisely these kinds of organizational opportunities as Secretary. 

I also served on Graduate Liaison Committee of the French and Italian Department. As a representative for on this committee, I listened to and relayed logistical, departmental, and academic concerns from my peers to the other committee members. I advocated for student concerns and assured that messages were transmitted to the Department Chair and Director of Graduate Studies. Putting to use my organizational skills and leadership experience, I would enthusiastically take on the role of liaison between Lakeside residents and the committee.

Thank you very much for your consideration of me for this role! Please let me know if you have any questions— I would be happy to hear from you any time at
