As the semester comes to a close, the Wesleyan Student Assembly is already looking forward to next semester. If you’re the sort of person who has great ideas about how to improve the University’s policies on financial aid, dining, alcohol policy, or academics, we would love to have you on the Assembly.
If you have the passion and energy to create a better Wesleyan for your fellow students, you should run for a seat on the WSA. Currently, there are ten available seats in the Winter election. The winter election is at-large, so it is open to all members of the Wesleyan community regardless of class year.
To run, grab a petition and collect 25 signatures from your classmates. The petition can either be picked up from the WSA Office in the Usdan University Center or downloaded from this site: http://wsa.wesleyan.edu/general-assembly/election-petition/. A copy will also be attached to this e-mail. You may either submit your petition in the WSA Office OR at the mandatory Candidate’s Meeting on the following date and place:
Friday, December 10th at 6:00 pm in Usdan 108
You must also send a 150 word statement explaining why you belong on the WSA to firstname.lastname@example.org by the above time and date. This statement will appear on the voting page.
If you cannot make the Candidate’s Meeting, please send a proxy in your place with an email to email@example.com 24 hours before.
We hope you take this opportunity to get involved here at Wesleyan. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Don’t wait–get involved!
Best, Nandita Vijayaraghavan, Ben Firke, and Arya Alizadeh, WSA Elections Committee
