Barnard students elected Julia Qian, BC ’15, president of their Student Government Association, in an election that saw a lower absolute and relative voter turnout compared to last year, despite the recent decision to allow seniors to vote.
Student Government Association
Elections for next year’s Student Government Association—which include races for the council’s executive board, an open University Senate seat, class council, and various representative positions—get underway on Tuesday morning.
Barnard seniors will be able to vote in the Student Government Association elections this year for the first time, thanks to a recent proposal approved at the start of this month.
Candidates for the Barnard Student Government Association discussed their platforms on Thursday night ahead of next week’s elections.
For the first time ever, Barnard’s commencement ceremony will be transcribed and translated into 57 languages online, but the students who led the initiative said they ran into administrative opposition in achieving their full plan.
Paying attention to the going-ons of student government can actually be interesting, and rewarding.
