SGA Announces Class of 2016 Elections

Elon University prides itself on having a student body full of future leaders and the Class of 2016 is no exception!  Throughout high school you all were presidents of your organizations, captains of your sports teams, active within community service and volunteerism, and held a plethora of other leadership roles in your community.

Student Government Association is a pivotal part of the happenings and events that take place on Elon’s campus. Members of Student Government write and enact legislation that can create major change for our entire student body. They take an active part in creating the campus climate for each school year and Student Government members are some of the main leaders around campus.

SGA offers new students immediate leadership opportunities! With this in mind, I strongly encourage you all to run for one of the many elected First-Year Class Officer positions.

Attached with this post is the First-Year Fall Elections Packet. Within this packet are the rules and regulations set for this upcoming First Year elections season. Though the packet will answer any specific questions or information you would like to know about the elections process, here are some important facts to remember for those who are interested in running for Student Government:
