Campus Brief: USG prepares for elections

Students interested in student government can attend information sessions for Undergraduate Student Government elections at 7:30 p.m. in Olscamp 221 on Monday, Feb. 13 and Wednesday, Feb. 15.

The information sessions are open to full-time undergraduate students in good standing with the University. Students interested in running for a position with USG must also have a 2.5 cumulative GPA, according to the USG procedure election packet.

After the information sessions, students running for a position can begin campaigning, said Ben Goldsberry, USG Speaker of the Senate.

Students who wish to run for USG President or Vice President must obtain 100 student signatures in the form of a petition, and students who want to run for a seat in the senate need 50 signatures.

Becoming a member of USG is a great way to give back to the University, Goldsberry said.

“Basically it’s just a way to get your voice heard at the University,” he said.
