The Student Government Association recently held freshman elections. To recap, petitions were made available outside of Office E-306 beginning Sept. 20 and were due back outside that same office on Sept. 24. Elections were then held the following week on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 in the Student Life Space.

Positions that were available were a Freshman Representative and two Freshmen Programming Board members. After the votes were counted, the Student Government was happy to announce that Caroline Moskalewicz (Freshman Representative) and Raven Bridges and Natalie Orozco (Freshmen Programming Board members) were elected.

After the election closed and the votes were tallied, Student Government President, Emme Bottom, said, “Students were excited to vote and the process was easy! I am looking forward to working with our new Freshmen SGA members this fall to plan student events and hear from their perspective.”

Cory Tomasson added that, “Although the total number of ballots cast was relatively low, that usually happens in uncontested elections. However, the number is higher than the sophomore elections from this past spring. I am excited to have both Caroline and Raven join the strong sophomores that we have in place. I really think that we have a creative and responsible group of individuals that will represent the student body very well.”

The IVCC Student Government Association held a meeting on Sept. 16. Cory Tomasson and sophomore members went over new and ongoing business. Here, they decided on new office hours being held in their office, E-201B, located in the Student Life Space. They have their hours hung by the door. If students are in need of new ping pong paddles/balls or have any ideas/concerns, they are able to visit members during office hours.

Also, at the meeting, they reviewed results from advisors about possible events for students coming up along with more ways to promote other organizations. They are looking forward to having a meeting with the President’s Council.

Lastly, the Student Government representatives would like to thank all students who stopped by and took the time to vote.
