After an election that ran from Monday morning to Wednesday afternoon, the Class of 2022 selected Alex Pu, Anya Wang, David Liang, and Zebeeb Nuguse to serve as their Student Government representatives for the 2018–19 school year.

Running jointly with Laureen Akram, Alex Pu promised improvements to Wi-Fi, free printing and laundry, and a renewed focus on mental health. Anya Wang vowed to expand Maroon Dollars to cover printing and laundry, provide female hygiene products in all dorm bathrooms, host destress events on campus, and expand student discounts among local businesses.

David Liang presented voters with a wide array of promises, including plans to make campus safer, improve student quality of life, and increase student political participation.

Zebeeb Nuguse ran on a platform of social justice and vowed to address worker’s rights and diversity on campus. Issues singled out for specific concern included graduate student compensation and a plan to create cultural centers for minority students.

Over the course of their campaigns, candidates posted flyers around campus, spoke to voters during informal sessions on the Reynolds Club, and advertised their platforms on social media.

Student Government will host their first public meeting on Monday, October 29, at the Booth School of Business.
