Residential hall officials have chosen 15 new senators to represent on-campus students in Associated Student Government.
Students living in dorms chose from a pool of 40 candidates in an online election Thursday. The Residential College Board and the Residence Hall Association interviewed and selected the senators from among the election winners Sunda. The RCB and RHA are made up of student representatives from dorms.
Around 825 students cast votes, said ASG spokesman Matt Bellassai, a Medill junior. More than 4000 students live in dorms and were eligible to vote.
ASG President Claire Lew, in an interview Thursday, said she wanted to make this year’s elections more competitive and higher-profile than past years’ votes have been. She cited elections three years ago, which she said were not well publicized.
“We’ve made progress since then in terms of publicizing the role and how people can get involved,” the SESP senior said.
