This week, SURGE is highlighting the fearless work of Andeulazia Hughes-Murdock ’18. Andeulazia, originally from Chantilly, Virginia, is a junior at Gettysburg College and majors in Spanish/Latin American Studies. As a dedicated member of the campus community, Andeulazia sought a variety of leadership opportunities, and is currently the PanHellenic President, President of the Class of 2018, and the Program Coordinator for the Center for Public Service at Sherfy Farm, as well as, the Campus Manager for University Tees. With these leadership roles, Andeulazia hopes to “help lay the foundation to bring about changes that need to happen, such as making the Greek community on campus more representative of different cultural backgrounds.” She wants to ensure that everyone on this campus is comfortable with sharing their experiences and joining new spaces.
