Ford/Jordan UPUA Ticket Earns IFC Endorsement

The Interfraternity Council announced this afternoon it will endorse Terry Ford and Katie Jordan in UPUA’s presidential race. The IFC heard presentations from both tickets and voted Monday night on the endorsement.

“We feel Terry Ford and Katie Jordan are best suited to serve the Penn State Community,” said IFC President Will Quaranta. “They are highly qualified and have the experience necessary to achieve their many incredible initiatives.” Quaranta also endorsed the ticket individually.

The Greek endorsement is one of the most coveted throughout the election process — the ticket that receives the support of Greek life has won every election in recent years.

While the IFC endorsement is based around who it believes will better serve the student body, it’s interesting to note neither Ford nor Jordan are members of Greek life. Both members of the opposing ticket, Divy Agnihotri and Megan Fleming, are members of a fraternity and sorority, respectively.

Campaigning is well underway and both tickets have secured a plethora of endorsements. The candidates will participate in the first of two debates next Tuesday night with election day coming on March 30.
