    Pledging to be “visible and open,” Bhumi Patel, the newly elected president of the University of Miami’s Student Government, was sworn in, along with other SG Executive Board members, on April 3 during a ceremony held inside the BankUnited Center’s Hurricane 100 Room. The 2013-14 Executive Board members include:

    Bhumi Patel, president
    Justin Borroto, vice president
    Robby Chiste, treasurer
    Hailey Bush, speaker of the senate
    Willy Herrera, speaker pro tempore
    Ricardo Fraga, chief justice
    Mike Piacentino, chief of staff
    Alessandria San Roman, executive-at-large internal
    Nicole Garcia, executive-at-large external
    Adam Orshan, press secretary
    J. Alexander Barletto, elections commission chair
    Andrew Wyatt, Category 5 chair
    Kamal Daghistani, ECO agency chair
    Lorena Guardia, executive secretary

    In her message to SG members, Patel said, “Let your passion show through, be positive, make the most of the journey, and keep fighting. The student body has put their faith in us and it’s our chance to go beyond their expectations.”

    Patel also addressed UM students. “We will be visible and open,” she said. “I encourage every student to be part of our process. Visit us in the office. Come to our events. Email us, or just stop us when you see us around campus. The power of U is the power of the students to give input on our ever-evolving university. As you envision the future of UM, we will work diligently to make it a reality.”

    Patricia A. Whitely, vice president for student affairs; Thomas J. LeBlanc, executive vice president and provost; Jim Cason, mayor of Coral Gables; and other UM administrators and staff attended the ceremony.
