Run For Student Government!


Registration for the University Park Undergraduate Association Elections is open until Friday, March 2nd at 2:00 PM.  You can pick up a registration packet in 332 HUB at the following times:

  • Tuesday: 1:00-4:00 PM
  • Wednesday: 1:00-4:00 PM
  • Thursday: 1:00-8:00 PM
  • Friday: 10:00 AM-2:00 PM

Students are encouraged to pick their packet up before Friday, because Representative candidates need to obtain 100 signatures to get on the ballot.  Presidential candidates need 250 signatures.  Academic Representative candidates do not need to obtain any signatures.

There are five categories that students can run for:

  • President/Vice-President
  • At-Large Representative
  • Off-Campus Representative
  • On-Campus Representative
  • Academic Representative

Any undergraduate can run for UPUA, and no experience is necessary.  You just need to have a voice and a desire to use it!  Have you ever sat around and complained about student government?  Now is your chance to put your thoughts into action.  It’s easy to complain about UPUA, but if you really want to make a difference, pick up a packet and run.

Email [email protected] with any questions, or stop in 332 during registration hours to ask a Commissioner.  All candidates must attend a mandatory Candidate Information Session on Sunday, March 11 at 8:00 PM in 129 HUB.

    More parliamentary procedure than you ever asked for! But really, give it a shot! It’s a great opportunity to help students and the University community, plus great experience for the future.
