Alyssa Konesky is an accomplished senior from Howell, Michigan, pursuing a political science degree at Michigan State University's esteemed College of Social Science. Alongside her major, she's working towards two minors: Quantitative Data Analytics and German.
As a first-generation college student, Alyssa has faced and overcome numerous challenges on her academic journey. However, it has only amplified her passion for student advocacy – the driving force behind her achievements. She takes immense pride in being a Spartan. Her ultimate goal is to create a welcoming and inclusive community, no matter the size. Throughout her time at MSU, Alyssa has passionately advocated for education and allyship to end antisemitism. She's contributed significantly to MSU's Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Foundations, promoting the values of acceptance and coexistence within her immediate and extended communities.

Alyssa's favorite campus spot is the courtyard opposite the Union and adjacent to Cowles House. She enjoys spending time there during spring when the lush grass transforms into a breathtaking scene with many blooming flowers. It's the perfect spot to unwind and relax with friends after a long day of classes.
