Carlos Artiles is in his second year as the Student Body Vice President for Salt Lake Community College.
His goal this year is to promote the Student Senate, making students aware of who the student government representatives are and how to reach them.
“I love being part of Student Life and Leadership. I have met a lot of people from students to faculty, and it is an opportunity that has opened a lot of doors for me,” says Artiles, “I would invite any students to come to our office and check us out.”
His main plan for this year is to strengthen the relationship that was created last year with the Student Senate and the faculty and staff at the school. According to Artiles, one of the benefits to this relationship is that they are now working together to ensure better solutions for students when it comes to the high costs of textbooks.
Artiles is an international student from Spain who has been living in Utah for nine years.
He is studying mechanical engineering. He hopes to get a Master’s in aerodynamics and work for a racing team.
Artiles loves spending his free time with family and friends. He has many hobbies, but his favorite one is racing. He goes go-kart racing any chance he can get.
“I love meeting new people. If you have any issues and you see me around, just stop me. I would love to help,” says Artiles.
