The Student Government Association (SGA) is gearing up for spring senator elections.
In an email sent out March 15, Riley Brown, SGA 2021-22 president-elect, emphasized the role of senators in campus life. “From student life senators to academic senators to class senators, members of student government bring concerns to the table from fellow students and serve as a liaison between them and the university,” Brown said.
There are 19 senator positions available this semester. They are separated into three categories: student life, academic and class. Each category will focus on serving its assigned campus group.
Candidates turned in applications last week. Each person submitted an applicants statement of purpose, a personal biography and a personal portrait to be considered for the position.
The campaigning period is March 18 through March 28. Candidates are required to present speeches on March 25 at 5 p.m. The student body will be able to view the speeches over Zoom. SGA officials will email a link at a later date.
Voting begins on Monday, March 29, at 8 a.m. and will continue until Thursday, April 1, at 4 p.m. Students can vote with the online voting system through a link sent to their SU emails.
