Clevenger offers different experience for the job as president of the Political Science Club, while Brown is a ranking member of his fraternity.
  • Director of programming between Matt Cola and Marvin Logan. Logan has served on USG’s programing board and has been instrumental in bringing in musical acts and comedians. Cola promises to work with specific colleges to bring in guest speakers to spark excitement and promote learning lends to his candidacy.
  • Director of community affairs between Kathyn Clarkin and Hannah Ward. Ward spoke on a platform to get students more involved with downtown businesses through internships and incentive programs. Due to a scheduling conflict, Clarkin was not on hand at the forum.
  • Director of student advancement between Brian Morris and Lauren Romick. Both were adamant about teaching students their rights. Romick brings experience in as the senator for the college of business.
