SGA elections are in full swing! We have our Executive Board Debates taking place on Monday April 8th at 9:30p in the Carl Hansen Piazza. This is a great chance to meet the candidates running and see what each has to offer. Free food and drinks will be provided.

SGA elections are taking place on Wednesday, April 10th from midnight-8pm this year! Campaigning begun last Wednesday at midnight and will follow through to next week. Students can vote on Qu.Collegiatelink.Net or Do You QU and see every candidate and their profiles. Every student who votes will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win over $100 in gift cards to the Quinnipiac Bookstore and Amazon as well as a chance to win an iPad Mini.

The Programming Committee is also holding Breakfast For Bobcats in the morning where SGA members will be giving out free breakfast from Whitney Donut. We will also have voting stations available for students to vote if they haven’t already done so.

Good luck to all of the candidates running this year. We cannot wait to see the result next Wednesday!
