Associated Students Vice President
My name is Danielle Priore and I am so excited and proud to serve as your Associated Students Vice President for the 2016-2017 school year! I currently am a senior, majoring in both Real Estate and Finance. Associated Students has been a huge part of my college experience: I served as a Residential Senator two years ago, and last year served as a Business Senator as well as the Chair of Student Life. Apart from AS, I have also been involved in the Residence Hall Association, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, the Real Estate Society, and I am an active member of Kappa Alpha Theta.
My involvement has made USD feel like home and has driven me to give back to the community. I have such a passion and love for this school, and I want to share this with everyone. USD is filled with amazing leaders, students, faculty members, mentors, and true friends. These people have inspired me, supported me, and motivated me to make USD better however I can. I never thought coming from Cleveland, Ohio and not knowing a single person that I would run in a student body election. But this community has helped me become the person I am, and I could not be more grateful.
As Vice President, I oversee the Chair of Academics and the Chair of Student Organizations. This is a huge part of the USD experience, and I want to make sure that everyone feels they have a voice in the decisions that are made. My goal for academics is to make sure that AS is actively listening to the needs of students in the classroom and communicating these needs to faculty to create positive change. For student organizations, I want to see more interaction between the different organizations and create a more inclusive campus community.
Another personal goal is to help people find their place at USD. I encourage everyone to enter into this year with excitement and willingness to change and grow. Our community is a great one: filled with opportunity, friendship, mentorship, and leadership potential. As a team, we can create positive change together and hopefully leave a lasting impact on this University.

Let’s make this an amazing year Toreros!
