Meet Jo, 2022 Homecoming Court Member

Jo Kovach is a senior at MSU from Riverview, Michigan studying social relations and policy as part of the James Madison College with a minor in history. They were elected as the executive director of the Association of Big Ten Students where they advocated for student causes and collaborated with members of the Michigan Legislature. In 2020 they were elected as the James Madison College general assembly representative for Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU) before being elected as the vice president for Internal Administration in 2021. Kovach was elected as the ASMSU president in Spring 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year. During their time at ASMSU, Kovach advocated for student causes and collaborated with members of the Michigan legislature by creating over 31 pieces of legislation in support of their constituents, including one aimed to get rid of predatory leasing practices students face when looking for housing. They are also a member of Kappa Alpha Pi, MSU’s pre-law fraternity. They have used their time at MSU to advocate for other students and make the university a better place for them.

“Michigan State University is special because of the 50,000 unique students who are enrolled here that all contribute to a campus culture rooted in togetherness. Although being one of the largest college campuses in the United States geographically and providing a plethora of resources that only larger schools can, the welcoming and friendly atmosphere at MSU resembles one of a much smaller school. The MSU student body continuously uplifts and welcomes one another, and it is so easy to find a home at MSU.”
