HOW TO: RUN FOR STUDENT GOVERNMENT
ARE YOU QUALIFIED?
If you are passionate about something that might affect your peers, willing to spend a significant amount of time on an organization, and have ideas on how to make campus a better place, then you are probably qualified to run.
There is no magic formula that makes you presidential material. Does it help to have leadership experience? Yes, but that does not mean leadership experience comes in the form of being a club president or senator. Sometimes being a passionate, dedicated and responsible student is enough.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE?
Read the Board of Elections Code to identify requirements to run for Student Government Association Senate and Student Government Association Executive (Student Body President and Vice Presidents).
