The USGA will accept write-ins for these positions. If students obtain the minimum 25 write-ins, they can win a vacant position. If the position remains open until the first week of summer term, the elected student government will appoint someone to each position sans student body vote.
Andrew Gould has already been appointed to the position of vice president by the outgoing USGA board, according to USGA procedures.
*Dustin Ingram's platform was accidentally omitted from the print spread. It is as follows:
As USGA Treasurer, I will facilitate communication, understanding and education to the advantage of Drexel's students. My vertically-integrated commitment allows me several unique perspectives, from executive director of Habitat for Humanity to vice chair of SAFAC. These experiences enable me to effectively convey the thoughts, opinions and concerns of every student I meet.
