Vote Today!!

Are you dissatisfied with current dining options? Do you wish you could have seen the syllabus of your least favorite class this semester before signing up? Are you tired of paying for events run by student orgs? Do you care about our student government?

One of these things is not like the other, you might think. The first three questions are those I have been discussing with students during the past two months. Overwhelmingly, you, the student body, have told me that there are parts of your everyday lives at GW that could be made a little bit less stressful. The last question at first glance seems out of place because for many, the answer is no, and really, that's ok. However, I believe that our student government is capable of voicing student concerns, discussing solutions, and implementing changes across campus.

Today, you have your last chance to decide who will be your student government president and lead the effort to bring changes students want to see to campus. Both Nick and I have put in a lot of time and effort into our respective campaigns over the past two months, and I ask that you take a minute or two to vote today. Choose the candidate that best addresses your concerns, choose the candidate that shares your values, or choose the candidate whose t-shirt color you like the best. Talk to your friends and get involved in the conversation because this is your opportunity. It’s only by working together that we can change our campus.

Vote online today from 9am-9pm at

Julie, any thoughts on the GWBlogspot poll question about "honest mistake"?

Coming from you, Julie?

What about the Finance committee that, under your leadership, forced at least two, if not more, student orgs to charge for their events because they had "potential to make money"?

I would seriously like an answer to that...
