Graduate Senator
Earnst Ilang-Ilang


Senior Class Snator
Lee Hicks

I am from the great city of Virginia Beach, Virginia located in Tidewater Virginia. I like long walks on the beach and a romantic comedy once in a while. I have served in SGA for four years now in a host of different positions, but I have also served the campus community as a Peer Instructor, Quest Assistant, and now as a teaching assistant for CORE 201. I am looking forward to this year, for it is the centennial year for the Student Government Association. I look forward to leading the Class of 2015 across the stage in May (or December)!


Junior Class Senator
Freddy Patterson

My name is Freddy Patterson, and I am the Junior Class Senator. I am from Midlothian, VA or Southside Richmond to avoid confusion. I like to relax, which is in contrast to my fast-paced career here at Radford University, so in hindsight relaxation makes perfect sense. I have been heavily involved on-campus since my sophomore year. I have served as the Concert chair for R-Space, and am currently the Campus Liaison for PRSSA, as well. I ask that, if you do not know me personally, come up to me at any time, whether it is to voice your concern with Radford, or to vent about your day, or just to say, “Hi!” every bit of it is appreciated and encouraged! You can find me in the SGA office on Tuesdays 12:30-1:30pm. Remember, speak loudly so you are heard!

Currently a Sophomore with a major in Sports Medicine and a minor in Psychology, I love to play soccer, hike, and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. I'm a very sociable person, so don't be afraid to ask me any questions. I was a Quest Assistant in 2014, and am currently a Resident Assistant in Moffett Hall


College of Human Behavioral Science
Joe Stacey

Howdy! I’m Joe Stacey, the senator for the College of Humanities and Behavioral Somethings (CHBS). I am a junior in RU’s Army ROTC studying Criminal Justice, and this is my first year in the SGA. I decided to join not only because there were no other people interested in representing CHBS, but also because I realized that ROTC and other members of our nation’s armed forces do not have anyone to be their voice. One of my main goals for this coming year is to create a position in the SGA with the sole purpose of representing Radford University students who are also current or former members of the military. I also enjoy helping out anyone else that I can though, and if you have something you would like me to do for CHBS or just the student body in general, feel free to email me at jstacey5@radford.edu, or come by the SGA office upstairs in the Bonnie on Fridays from 2-3pm and talk to me in person.

I'm a double major in Communication Sciences and Disorders and Psychology, and I hope to attend graduate school to pursue an Au.D. in Audiology. I enjoy SGA because it gives me the opportunity to represent and be the voice of the students of Waldron College. I also enjoy long walks on the beach, puppies, and coffee. In all seriousness, please email me with any ideas, questions, or concerns!
