The newly elected executive ticket, Temple United, was introduced to the General Assembly at the Temple Student Government meeting yesterday, April 15.
TSG Student Body President-elect Darin Bartholomew, Vice President of Services-elect Cree Moore and Vice President of External Affairs-elect Sonia Galiber addressed the General Assembly as the new executive officers and urged students to apply for open director positions.
Last year, candidates could nominate themselves or be nominated by two other people and were elected by the General Assembly. Current Student Body President David Lopez admitted that system did not work as planned.
This year, Temple United will review applications and interview candidates before appointing the directors.
Temple United members said they’re looking for candidates who are organized, have good time management skills, will be dedicated to TSG and have a wide variety of campus experiences.
Director applications can be found online under the elections tab of the TSG website, templestudentgovernment.org, and are due by 5 p.m. on April 25.
TSG’s Spring Fling activities including a social media campaign and a sunglass giveaway were also discussed at yesterday’s meeting.
TSG Communications Director Kristin Turner announced that TSG is giving away a Barnes & Noble nook to the Twitter or Instagram user who posts a picture with the “most spirited attire” using the tag #TSGspringfling and includes @templetsg.
TSG will also have a table on Liacouras Walk and will give away sunglasses to the student body.
