Phoebe Joseph, a senior political science major with a minor in economics, works as the Assistant Director of Communications at the USF Tampa Campus. As part of the Executive Branch of Student Government, Joseph is a paid part-time employee in addition to being a full-time student. She hopes to use her experience in governmental work to help others.
“Politics to me is doing things for the people,” Joseph said.
She went on to explain that the program allows students to be a part of Student Government without the pressure of committing to the leadership alone. Other students volunteer at events, which alleviates some of the pressure of organizing an event by themselves.
