Hey everyone! My name is Reman Rafique, and I am a current 4th semester student here at SUSOM. I'm originally from Austintown, Ohio, and I earned a degree in Combined science while studying at Youngstown State University. While I spend most of the time holed up somewhere on campus studying, I try to get some down time here and there, whether that be relaxing with friends, or watching some football, anime, or movies when I get a chance. I'm a big Ohio State fan and enjoy sports in general!

I look forward to serving as your Vice President this semester!
