HELLOYFA! It's me, Dre, and I am so excited to be running to serve as your next College Council President. College Council is the governing body of the College of Arts & Sciences (CLAS), and mostly provides support through various funding initiatives. I am currently serving as the College Council's Recruitment Chair, but with my platform, I am hoping to increase the Council's involvement on Grounds. I believe that by revising the Council's structure, collaborating with diverse organizations, and participating in movements that increase academic opportunities, College Council can truly fulfill its responsibilities and be a helpful resource for all CLAS students, and an ally to OYFA as a whole.

Please feel free to find (and like) my page on Facebook,, for more information about my platform and campaign. If you have any questions, my email is, and I would love to hear from you. Thank you for your time and consideration, and have a wonderful week!

Best regards,
Dre Dilao
