Incumbent SGA president runs uncontested in 2024-25 elections

The Student Government Association (SGA)’s annual elections are being held on Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23. 

Incumbent SGA President Kai Hansen, a junior chemistry, philosophy and business major, is running for re-election unopposed. The races for the other three executive board positions also have one candidate each, making the election’s results a foregone conclusion. The expected winners are Arianna Salazar, a junior diplomacy major, for Vice President; Jackson Vaughn, a sophomore business major, for Treasurer; and Bryce Gray, a junior computer science major, for Secretary. 

Some of the races for the 28 Senator positions are competitive, while others are uncontested or do not have enough candidates to fill the allotted seats. The candidates are as follows:
