A.S. President Joshua Kazarian was excited with the high number of elected members this semester.
“It’s a fantastic number from what I’ve gathered, higher than usual for these kinds of elections,” Kazarian said. “We still have a number of senate seats open that we will have to fill, and we also want more representatives to fill all of our committees.”
Kazarian also found some positive take aways from the first senate meeting with the new senators and executives.
“We have seen a massive amount of enthusiasm from them… the diversity we have [in] majors, ethnicity, gender and ideas will help us to serve our students better than anything else,” Kazarian added. “This will be a year where A.S. has a presence on campus and where students know who we are and what we do.”
