WCC’s Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i, or ASUH, is preparing to hold an election for those who would like to serve in student government.
Many of the current and long-standing members are graduating, which provides a chance for other students to step up and fill their shoes.
Prospective candidates should email firstname.lastname@example.org before April 10 with a brief description of why they want to serve. After the nominees have been selected, a forum will be held to allow students to ask them questions.
Voting will then take place at the College and Career Fair April 14 and through a ballot box in the library.
Currently, ASUH-WCC is looking for a few more senators to participate this semester. First, a prospective student must attend a number of meetings and observe how business is conducted. Once the prospect is familiar with the roles, a vote will be held to decide whether to induct them as a senator.
Becoming a member of student government can be valuable for any student’s college experience. By joining, “You get to connect with your fellow students and be the voice of the student body,” said Marley Smith, ASUH recording secretary.
