Keirans Reelected with 53.9% of Vote

3359343150_bb5203bfb1_oThe University Park undergraduate student body reelected Gavin Keirans for a second term as UPUA President in yesterday’s election.

Keirans earned 53.9% of the vote. Nearly 7,000 students voted in this year’s election, the largest turn out ever for a UPUA election (granted, there have been only four).

Samantha Miller, Keirans’ main competition (discounting “Borsuck” of course), earned 34.9% of the vote.

Keirans made the point during this year’s campaign that after last year’s election, he offered each of the presidential candidates he beat a spot on his executive board. Will he do the same this year? Not sure… this year’s election was definitely more intense than previous ones. As Keirans’ current vice president told the Collegian, “People also weren’t afraid this year to pick a team.” In any case, I’d be very surprised if they let Borsuk anywhere close to UPUA. (Though maybe he’ll attend his second meeting sometime in the next year?)

If you’re interested in seeing what you missed, check out our ’10 Questions’ with Miller or Keirans.

You can find the full results list at the UPUA Election Commission’s website. (Props to the commission, by the way, for running a pretty flawless election.)

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
