Voting is now open for the following elections:
- WSA President and Vice President
- Senior Class President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer
Voting will happen at wsa.wesleyan.edu/voting, closing at 11:59:59 p.m. on Friday, April 26. All class years (including seniors and students abroad!) can vote in the election for WSA President and Vice President. Only members of the Class of 2014 can vote in the Senior Class Officer election.
The students who are elected to these positions will technically represent the student body or significant portions of it. They will be taken as the voice of the student body by administrators, outside bodies, and even fellow students. They will occupy a critical space in dialogue with the administration, faculty, and other members of the community. They will have input on everything from assembly and university policy to budgetary issues, and almost every possible issue that affects students.
Want to make an impact on the Wesleyan community? Elections will be taking place from Monday, April 22, 2013 to Friday, April 26, 2013 for WSA President, WSA Vice President, and Senior Class Officer.
WSA President & Vice President
2014-2016 can run; 2013-2016 can vote
“It is a lot of work, it is a lot of time, and it is a lot of responsibility,” said Michael Pernick ’10, who served as WSA President for two years. “But at the end of the day, there is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you’ve had an impact – even if it’s a small impact – which makes life better for other students. The President and Vice President do more than merely run the operations of the WSA – they have a responsibility to serve the best interests of the student body as if it were an institution in and of itself.”
Senior Class 2014 President, Vice President, Secretary, & Treasurer
Only 2014 can run and vote
Serving as a Senior Class Officer also involves time commitment and thick skin, says Adam Rashkoff ’13, Senior Class Vice President. “Being a Senior Class Officer is a great opportunity for any student who wants to gain experience with large-scale event planning, or simply for anyone who wants to give back to their class by facilitating ways for it to bond as a collective.”
