Johnson Lin

First Year Class President


  • Hometown: Portland, OR (But I was born in Toronto!)
  • Class Year: 2021
  • Favorite spot on campus: sitting by the cube at night (it's beautiful and serene!)
  • CMC "Hack": The grand pianos in the Ath are amazing - hmu if you want lessons!


The role of the First Year Class President is largely shaped by the individual holding the position.  It is common for the First Year Class President to appoint a cabinet made up of fellow freshmen.  Any questions that the administration has about the class will come to you first. Main responsibilities include: 

  • Managing class communications
  • Planning and coordinating class events
  • Serving as the liaison between the administration and the freshman class
  • Serving on the Executive Board



A few of the initiatives Johnson is working on include designing and selling new CMC gear, having more flexible event funding, and planning variety of meaningful class events - not just parties!
