Caden Birch is not just know for his genuine, positive personality; he is known as the student body president here at Snow College. His friends describe him a person who immediately lights up the room and is an incredible leader for our school. He’s 22 years old, a sophomore and a local here in Ephraim. He spent two years of his life serving an LDS, Spanish speaking, mission in Indiana. And is now returning to finish up his degree.
Birch grew up in Gunnison and his family now resides here in Ephraim. Generations of his family have all gone to Snow and because of this, he always knew that he would be attending school here. His major is currently undecided but he’s leaning towards communications and possibly teaching high school or college.
He loves sports and is a part of the Tennis Club. One of his most memorable moments here was when his intramural basketball team took first. He listens to almost all kinds of music and has been loving Twenty-One Pilots lately. One of his favorite foods is a Mexican dish called Carne Asada, a thin steak on tacos. When he goes home for the weekend, he is most likely visiting family, helping with projects around the house, or snowboarding over in Fairview.
Birch’s advice to new freshman is to, “…get involved, try new things, join clubs, have fun but don’t forget to study too.” He said that running for office was very spur of the moment but from it, he has had an incredible year here at Snow. Make sure to say hello next time you see him on campus!
