UPUA Election Registration Begins This Week

Are you tired of UPUA’s inability to operate effectively? Do you think you could do a better job? If so, here’s your chance. From today to March 1st, UPUA is now accepting registration for candidacy for the upcoming election. Positions for the general assembly are up for grabs, or find a friend and run for President and Vice-President if you’re feeling extra ambitious.

Here’s the official press release from UPUA:

“The University Park Undergraduate Association, better known as UPUA, is now accepting registration for candidacy for its 2013 election season. During the registration period of Monday, February 18 to Friday, March 1, the Election Commission will be operating from 11 AM and 5 PM in room 332 HUB. The Election Commission will assist any undergraduate student at University Park their freshman, sophomore, and junior year to complete the necessary registration packet to officially become eligible to run for election. UPUA is a great opportunity for students to gain a greater perspective of Penn State University, while working for the betterment of the student body. Undergraduate students may choose to run for the executive ticket (President and Vice-President) or as a representative of the legislative assembly. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate in contacting UPUA via email at [email protected] Best of luck to all students interested in joining UPUA this year!”
