This week’s Five Favorites features University of Minnesota Undergraduate Student Government (USG) President Flora Yang. Yang took office in July, leading with a mission focused on making the University more holistically accessible for students.

When she’s not working closely with USG, Yang enjoys grabbing a bowl of bibimbap in Dinkytown or listening to alt-pop ballads. Here are Yang’s five favorites:

Favorite song?

“‘Dandelions’ by Ruth B. There are so many reasons why I love this song. Dandelions are one of my favorite plants/flowers. This singer and I have a similar vocal range, which makes this song easier for me to sing. I also think that it just has a lot of imagery behind some of the lyrics.”

Favorite local restaurant?

“Kbop in Dinkytown. I love Korean food in general, especially the side dishes that are part of every order. I usually order the Bibimbap because that’s usually what distinguishes Korean restaurants from each other.”

Favorite movie?

“‘Avatar.’ This is one of the earliest movies that I remember seeing in theaters with my family. I loved the CGI in the movie, and I am excited for the next one to come out at the end of this year.”

Favorite social media account?

@Usg.umn. This is the Undergraduate Student Government Instagram account. I think it provides students with a lot of good updates and information about some opportunities on campus or progress on certain advocacy initiatives.”

Favorite bathroom on campus?

“The Campus Club bathroom. This bathroom is just very well-maintained and has lots of mirrors. The walls are also painted so it makes the aesthetic more pleasant.”
