John Rust ’20
The Woodlands, TX
Hello everyone! My name is John Rust and I am a Political Science major from The Woodlands, Texas. I transferred to UTSA for my sophomore year of college. I am an active member of the UTSA Army ROTC program and currently serve as the Chairman of Business Affairs and Junior Classification Senator within the Student Government Association.
Upon arriving at UTSA, I was eager for new opportunities. I vividly recall my first day here. I was struggling to move into my dorm room at Chisholm Hall. Fortunately,I was met by several organizations here on campus and their willingness to assist me in moving caught me very much off- guard. Since then, I have learned more and more about the selflessness of our student body and good-hearted nature of our student organizations.
My sophomore year I joined Model United Nations, the fraternity Phi Gamma Delta and eventually found my home in our Student Government Association. In this organization, I have had the great honor of serving as Sophomore and Junior Senator, Chairman of Business Affairs, and now Student Body President.
In my new role as president, I want to benefit the university by serving as an accountable and dedicated leader. I want my initiatives to be action-oriented, creating timelines for individual developments so that our progression can be tracked and evaluated. I will continue several initiatives from this past year, along with forming new ones of my own.
I look forward to advancing the student experience of my fellow Roadrunners and heightening the great reputation of our university.
