The 2014–2015 school year was marked by new faces — a new chancellor, president, governor and basketball coach. The year also featured stranger elements, including a brief Ebola scare, a new 50-foot canoe sculpture and a satirical Student Government campaign that ended in victory. Check out our year in review for more.
In 1982, a satirical campaign won the Student Government election with 3,013 votes — attracting more votes than the second and third place candidates combined. The punchline: The winning candidate was fictional.
After a University-wide Student Government election in which no executive alliance ticket captured over 50 percent of the vote, candidates Braydon Jones and Kimia Dargahi will enter a runoff election against Xavier Rotnofsky and Rohit Mandalapu.
The Election Supervisory Board suspended two Student Government candidates, University-wide representative candidate Anika Agarwal and Liberal Arts representative candidate Sammy Minkowitz, from campaigning for two days.
