Shelby Adams

Student Body President

Hello, my name is Shelby Adams and I am from Lorton, Virginia.  I am currently a rising junior majoring in Criminology, Law, and Society with a minor in Legal Studies. I have been in Student Government for almost two years. I was previously the Chairwoman of the Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Committee within the Senate. Within that position, I tried my best to promote Diversity, and most importantly, inclusion. I connected and strived to strengthen the relationship between multicultural student organizations and Student Government. Outside of Student Government, I was previously in NAACP and served as Vice President. Through that role, I assisted the President and all the committee chairs with their initiatives and helped promote a safe space for minority students to gather together in round-table discussions to discuss various topics. In my free time, I like to watch shows like Love Island UK, You, Elite, On My Block, and more! I also like to bake as well, mainly cupcakes and cookies!

Lastly, I would like to add that my Vice President, Chief of Staff, and I are resources that you can use in your journey as a student here at Mason! Feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, and/or concerns!
