Major: Political Science and Sociology

About me: My name is Garrett Bell and I’m a junior majoring in Political Science and Sociology, in addition to, minoring in Economics and Jewish Studies. Though, I’m from a small town centered around church, tobacco, and Friday night football, I have found my niche, here, at the university by involving myself in the Baptist Campus Ministry, the SGA, and the year round college basketball obsession. What propelled me to seek a position in Student Government was, without a doubt, my faith in Jesus Christ. With that faith comes purpose, and with that purpose comes the passion to serve other people, no matter how much like me or unlike me they are. Campus safety allows me to do so in a multitude of ways, ensuring that each individual at Kentucky feels the security they need in their physical surroundings, in order to, then, pursue security in their own purpose in life. I am very much excited to start working with Off-Campus Services to implement safer and more convenient travelling routes to and from campus for students and faculty, as well as, work with other members in SGA to establish a new SafeRide Home system. But, even more so, I truly look forward to the opportunity to sit down with individual students and listen to their personal stories and concerns about on- and off-campus safety.

Other Campus Involvement: Spiritual Growth Leader at Baptist Campus Ministry, Research Assistant  at University of Kentucky Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering
