Student Body President


Hey friends! My name is Daniel Hostetter, and I am so excited to serve as your Student Body President. I grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and I am studying Government: Politics and Policy with minors in Theology and Biblical Studies. I love discovering good coffee, reading new books, and losing to my Chief of Staff Braden Daniels in Spikeball.

I love Liberty, and I’m committed to working for the good of all students and for the glory of God. I am convinced that the Lord is working through us to advance His kingdom on this campus as we pursue discipleship and maturity, encourage one another in prayer, value intellectual curiosity and excellence, and trust that the Lord will be faithful to complete His good work in us.

Riley and I are excited to meet you! We value your heart for Liberty and can’t wait to listen to your stories and solutions. I can’t wait to connect with you!

Student Body Vice President


Hey Liberty!

I am so thrilled to serve you as Student Body Vice President this year! I study Business Administration: Digital Marketing & Marketing Analytics with minors in Spanish and Global Studies. This will be my third year serving in Student Government, and I have spent the last two years serving our clubs and student organizations in the executive branch Clubs Department

In my time at Liberty, I have been both inspired and humbled upon building relationships with students who love God and advocate for others so deeply. Now in this role, I am inspired and humbled tenfold, as I grow in loving God and advocating for others in new ways.

Liberty looks more like the Kingdom of God because of YOU, and the diverse cultures, beliefs, and thoughts you bring to our campus. I am grateful for the opportunity to get to know the individual elements you bring to LU.

I look forward to an incredible year! Stop by our offices anytime, I would love to get to know your story. I would love to advocate for YOU.

Braden Daniels

Braden Daniels

Chief of Staff

Hey LU! My name is Braden Daniels, and I am thrilled and humbled to serve as your Chief of Staff this academic year. I grew up in Beckley, West Virginia and am a Junior majoring in Pre-Law: Law and Policy and Interdisciplinary Studies: Religion and Social Sciences. I love virtually all sports, especially playing volleyball, beating my Student Body President, Daniel Hostetter, in Spikeball, and watching Rafael Nadal, the Baltimore Ravens, the San Antonio Spurs, and the Duke Blue Devils.

As Chief of Staff, I handle the operations of the Cabinet through things like vision drafting, Cabinet meetings, and personal check-ins as well as SGA as a whole through things like operation of the SGA website and email. I also work alongside Daniel and Riley to make sure administrative advocacy and student interaction run smoothly.

This summer, I was inspired by watching the world’s greatest chefs pushing the boundaries of food and art by constantly asking if things really have to be the way we are told they are supposed to be. I look forward to bringing that same energy in my position as Chief of Staff, not in the way I cook but in the way I lead the Cabinet and shine biblical love to all of Liberty University.

Jada Taylor

Director of Community Affairs

Hello Everyone! I am so blessed and honored to serve as your Community Affairs Director this semester. I am from the Bay Area, an English major, and currently serving as an RA on the Hill. I love to write, watch football, and hang out with my friends and family.

This Community Affairs team is dedicated to making sure that both the Liberty University and Lynchburg communities are being encouraged to thrive. The health of both groups is a top priority, so we will work to make sure that they are provided with the necessary resources and tools to grow in a way that benefits themselves and the people around them.

My prayer is that the Lord would use this team as a vessel to spread the Gospel both on campus and off. I pray that, through the events, conversations, and relationships built by members of this team, His children would know that they are loved and seen by Him.  I also pray that the sole truth that is God’s word would be understood and proclaimed throughout the city of Lynchburg and that His Kingdom would be advanced.
