Owen Barnard is one of your sitting CLAS Senators and a sophomore political science major at Villanova University. He grew up nearly 20 hours away in Oxford, Mississippi.

Whether it’s talking Villanova Basketball, current events, Ole Miss football, or just a good plate of food, Owen is your guy.

Villanova was a perfect fit for Owen who is both an Eagle Scout and a two-time AmeriCorps VISTA alumnus. Nova’s commitment to service, fellow students, and on-campus opportunities are second to none. It was this willingness to dig deep that sold him on his new home at Villanova.

On campus Owen is a member of the Blue Key Society, College Democrats, She’s The First, and other organizations. He is also the editor-in-chief and founder of Squared Politics.

Over the past year, Owen has worked alongside his fellow Senators, Class Representatives, and other SGA members to reform and grow Villanova’s student government. This includes the debate and passage of its new constitution, community service in the surrounding townships, being part of key on campus policy discussions, and more.

He looks forward to hearing your Villanova stories over the next weeks and hopefully serving another term as one of your Senators from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
