Hello Iowa State! My name is Jaden
Ahlrichs and I am a double major in Global
Resource Systems and Horticulture, and I
am running to be your next Student Body
Vice-President. Coming from small-town
Iowa, Iowa State has fostered a community
that has supported my academic, personal,
and professional success. I want every
student that comes to Iowa State to have
the same community that I have the
privilege of enjoying. As an RA, a
Residence Hall Senator, and a past Cyclone
Aide, I work to ensure new students have
access to the resources they need and
cultivate opportunities for community
building. Embarking on this journey to
empower ISU will be the highlight of my
college career and I can’t wait for you to join
