Sophomore, Dylan Lustig,  and junior, Taylor Carr, are the two candidates running for Student Association President this year. Both Lustig and Carr have graciously agreed to take time out of their hectic schedules to be interviewed by me in the coming weeks. God bless both of ‘em. I have a hard enough time attending boring ass lectures and keeping up with readings. The prospect of becoming the head of SA would makes me want to drive down to Ithaca and jump off a gorge.

Whoever emerges as the new SA leader will have a daunting task: making sure students actually know what the Student Association is and does. Not all of the seats in SA are filled and not every college is fully represented, which recently led to one member of the association to encourage his peers in Communication and Rhetorical Studies in the College of Visual and Performing Arts to join the student governing body.

Perhaps the most important responsibility SA has is that it allocates a large portion of the $189 student fee that every SU student paid this fall. So if you do the math, because I really can’t, that is a lot of dough. This means that Lustig or Carr will have to listen to the whining complaints of every organization on campus from the Anthropology Club to University Union.

But Lustig and Carr have both shown great eagerness to become president having already set up Facebook and Twitter accounts for their campaigns and utilizing campus media such as Citrus TV and the WERW radio station to generate awareness of their campaigns. Fortunately, voting will take on MySlice so there will be no chances of hanging chads. (Yes, I am that corny.)
