First, the two presidential tickets:
Terry Ford and Katie Jordan
Current Vice President Terry Ford headlines one presidential ticket accompanied by current At-Large Representative Katie Jordan. Ford, a rising senior, spent his first years as a Freshman Council member and then an At-Large Representative before serving as Vice President. Jordan, a sophomore, was on Freshman Council before serving as an At-Large Rep.
Divy Agnihotri and Megan Fleming
Current At-Large Representative and junior Divy Agnihotri is another candidate who will make a bid for the presidency. Agnihotri has served on UPUA since his freshman year, first as a Freshman Council member and then as an At-Large Rep for the last two. Megan Fleming, a sophomore and former Onward State managing editor, will accompany Agnihotri in the race.
UPUA also released the candidates for the At-Large and Academic Representatives. There are 22 candidates vying for 20 At-Large seats and one seat per academic college available.
