COT student representative applications due Wednesday

With the anticipated May 2018 graduation of Student Trustee Ms. Savannah Anderton, the University is beginning the search process for a student representative to the 12-member Edinboro University Council of Trustees, which governs the University.

Student representatives to the Councils of Trustees at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities are appointed by the Governor under the provisions of Act 188 of 1982, the enabling legislation for the State System of Higher Education. They are appointed for four-year terms or until graduation. The representative has the same voting rights and responsibilities as all COT members, and might be called upon to represent the University at official functions like convocation or commencement.

Eligible candidates must be at least a first-semester sophomore but no more than a second-semester junior in good academic standing. Students are encouraged to apply directly for the position by completing the application form in myEdinboro and returning the required materials to the Office of the Provost in Reeder Hall by Wednesday.

A campus committee will screen and interview applicants and make a recommendation to President H. Fred Walker. The successful candidate will be interviewed and appointed by Governor Tom Wolf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Sharing stories of #EULove for Valentine’s Day


Matt and Kristen Cassidy met at the Blessed Union of Souls concert in 2003. Katerina Findley and her fiancé, James Wilson, Jr., met in in Politics 101. James sat directly in front of her for an entire semester, but was too nervous to speak even a single word to her. Luckily, a mutual friend reconnected them that summer. Cody and Jamie Thaler met playing basketball in the Crawford Center Gymnasium.

Several couples have shared Edinboro University love stories – just like these ones – on our social media channels. With a photo and a brief story, students and alumni shared their stories using the #EULove hashtag on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. All of the user-submitted photos were collected and shared on Facebook in a special Valentine’s Day photo album. Thousands of people from around the country tuned in to hear accounts about meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right, right here on campus.

Check out the photo gallery to view then-and-now photos and read about Edinboro students and alumni and their stories. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see these and more stories.
