Q&A with Nate Cordick ’23

I What about the Goldfarb Center and its activities interested you in seeking an active role in a leadership position?  

With a tradition of hosting exceptional events and exciting guest speakers, the Goldfarb Center has long been the epicenter of political life on campus. Getting involved in a leadership capacity allows me to collaborate and share my ideas with other GSEC members to continue the tradition of bringing public affairs onto Mayflower Hill.

Do you have any specific goals or ideas you’d like to see implemented?

One of my primary goals as a member of GSEC is improving accessibility for the entire Colby community; making sure that everyone, regardless of their major or political affiliation, can engage with everything that the Goldfarb Center has to offer.

What do you think is the most interesting thing happening right now in public affairs?

Right now, we’re at a critical juncture in human history. How we address issues like the COVID-19 pandemic and recent mass protests will fundamentally shift the foundations and future trajectory of this country.

Why do you think it is important for Colby students and the broader community to care about public affairs?

Public affairs are the issues that affect us all—whether you’re the CEO of a multinational corporation or a clerk at a local grocery store, we all deserve to have our voices heard. And that starts with being an informed and engaged citizen.
