My name is Josiel Marrufo, the current Director of Cultural Affairs for the Student Association here at Northern Illinois University. I am ecstatic to be considered a student leader and a resource for many of our organizations here on campus. I am a Senior Kinesiology Major, with a minor in Spanish. Before becoming a Director for the Student Association, I have had influential roles in other student organizations like Supporting Opportunity for Latinos (S.O.L.), and Latino Student Alliance (L.S.A.).  I have also created bridges to other organizations here on campus both Greek and non-Greek, male and female, and I have learned so much about other cultures and ethnicities.

With my experience as my support, I believe I have the avenues that it takes to help Resource Centers and students collaborate with one another into making some of the most knowledgeable events NIU has to offer. I feel my goal to bring people together and increase diversity at our events can help spark a flame to our current and future student body.

Again, this is an honor to work for you, the students, and look forward to meeting you throughout the school year. GO HUSKIES!
