Taylor Ney is a second year student at Florida State University double majoring in Political Science and Criminology with the aspirations of becoming a teacher. He exemplifies conservative values through his work in the Student Government Senate, and has served his FSU community as a 2016 Orientation Leader. He is a participant in the University’s Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) as a lab assistant in the Center for Disaster Risk Policy, and was inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honor Society last year. He has a 3.651 FSU GPA, and has been on the Dean’s List twice.
As the Vice Chair of the Student Senate’s Judiciary Committee, Taylor has consistently advocated for transparency in government, students’ rights, and fiscal conservatism. His hallmark achievement is making accessible voting records a permanent fixture in student government, as well as increasing accountability of student legislators to their constituents. He also promotes veterans’ and women’s health issues. Taylor is an excellent servant of the people, and has always maintained that students should always come first.
Welcoming the freshman class of Florida State is a big task, and it’s one that Taylor took on proudly. He underwent extensive training in order to be the first representative for students going through orientation, a program designed to help students transition comfortably to FSU life. He has been a resource for students beyond orientation, and loves to see his students become increasingly engaged on-campus as time goes on.
