As everyone is officially settling into spring classes, we are approaching the General Election for the SUO Board of Directors. We recognize that our student body is currently facing unprecedented hardship with the continuation of some online classes and the repercussions that have followed suit. That being said, it has never been more important to engage in a student union election. Get out there and vote, or take the plunge and run for SUO’s Board of Directors!
