Meet the Candidates: At Large Representatives

On Wednesday the student body will vote in members for the fifth assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association. Today we will be publishing guides about each of the positions and the candidates running for them.

All candidates listed in the Penn State Directory were contacted and asked for the same information. Candidates had the choice of answering one of two questions for the short-answer section. The first was ‘Do you believe that UPUA has headed in the right direction during President Keirans’ term?’ and the second was ‘Please explain an idea or policy you have for improving UPUA.’

Six ‘At Large’ positions are open to all full-time undergraduate students at University Park. This year, only six students are competing.

I believe President Keiran’s has done a tremendous job, and I would love to see the next UPUA President carry on in his footsteps. Gavin brought back a student government that was plagued by infighting and turned it into an effective and respective governing body.

My main idea for UPUA’s improvement is the education of the assembly on the bylaws and parlimentary procedures. I believe without the confusion concerning parlimentary procedures, the assembly will be able to have more efficient general assembly meetings. This would dismiss the fear of talking just because someone does not want to break the “rules”, and would help the meeting run smoother.

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.
