Freshmen candidate profiles

by Jenny Williams, Online Weekend Editor
The SGA elections for the class of 2011 will be held tomorrow in the auditorium during the advisory period. Freshmen will vote on Thursday and Friday in their English classes and the outcome of the election will be announced Friday.

The process required for freshmen to compete in the election began in the beginning of the month. SGA President Molly Martinez described the process as "boring, but mandatory." According to Martinez, the SGA created petitions that potential candidates had to submit by Sept. 11. In addition, the SGA held a meeting to familiarize the candidates with parts of the process, such as the fact that all candidates must write speeches.
