What If You Were President? With The Scarlet and Grace Notes!

It’s the beginning of March which means it’s the start of Women’s History Month. We had the chance to talk with members of the all-female a capella group, the Scarlet and Grace Notes, to see what they would change about campus and beyond if they could be president!

Katie Hudson, President, Senior, Psychology, Alto 1

What do you love about being in an all-female a cappella group?

I love how open and close we all feel with one another in an all-girls group. It’s just a different kind of bond to have a group of girls to rehearse with and laugh and unwind with. We can all empathize with each others’ struggles and feel each others’ pain on a deeper level

If you could be president what would you change?

I would change a lot of things as president, but I think having accessible healthcare is really important—especially for low-income individuals and women’s and reproductive healthcare

What would you change about campus?

I would probably add more facilities to accommodate student orgs—we have struggled to find proper spaces in the past!

Famous woman in history you look up to?

I’m a pretty big fan of Marie Curie and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Both pretty phenomenal women who have paved the way for others.

Allison Milewsky, Social Media, Junior, Psychology and WGSST, Alto 2

What do you love about being in an all-female a cappella group?

It is so empowering! Contrary to what most people probably think, we have next to no drama- we’re such an incredible support system for each other.

What would you change about campus?

I would make campus more accessible to student orgs—we’ve really had some trouble this year. I would also try to make advertising paperless! The union and most of our academic buildings are full of flat screens that can flip though flyers and posters- I think we could substantially reduce OSUs paper waste

Famous woman in history you look up to?

Kathleen Hanna. In the 90s she had a feminist punk band that really broke a lot of social norms and created a space for women in the punk rock industry. I learned about her in one of my wgsst classes and just thought she was incredible!

Gabi Winter, Freshman, Music Education, Soprano 1

What do you love about being in an all-female a cappella group?

Creating something with just women is a very unique and rewarding thing. We have a bond that defies the stereotypes of girls being catty towards one another. We are very supportive and love being around one and another.  

If you could be president what would you change?

One thing that I would change is gun control laws. I believe there are no more excuses for school shootings.

What would you change about campus?

I think there are ways to make campus a little safer. It is tiring to walk down high street having to constantly fear if someone will approach you or follow you. I understand that this is a common problem on other campuses/cities, but I think we could work harder to change this.

Shannon Novak, Senior, Psychology, Alto 1

What do you love about being in an all-female a cappella group?

I love the support system and the friends I have made by being in this group! I know that I can turn to anyone in this group if I’m in need of a study buddy, someone to grab food with, someone to hang out with, or someone to vent to. Our shared love of music has created a such a strong bond in us, and I love these ladies!

If you could be president what would you change?

Gun control laws.

What would you change about campus?

I would try and make Student Safety Service rides a bit more accessible for students who are in need of rides in spur of the moment occasions.

Famous woman in history you look up to?

Michelle Obama.
