Student Senate elections; take the pledge

September 10, 2020


Senate elections

Student Senate has exciting news as we head into our election season! Senate offers freshmen to seniors the opportunity to participate in Tuesday night meetings at 7 p.m. and influence every aspect of campus.

To run for any position, you will need 25 unique signatures from the student body endorsing your campaign. The available positions are:

  • Two class officers for each class, sophomore through seniors
  • Hall representatives from each residential hall area, including freshmen residencies
  • A representative at large

For more information and the signature form, contact Marcos Pedroza, vice president of media and communications, at We look forward to having you join us!

Pledge with us

Thank you to the students who have committed to the “I Pledge” campaign! It is going to require each of us to do our part if we are to stay on campus for the entire fall semester, and I thank each of the 350 undergraduate students who have pledged alongside me.

If you have yet to sign, I implore you to join your fellow cardinals and commit to doing your part to keep our campus safe by filling out this form.

Ann Merchlewitz, J.D., senior vice president and general counsel, shared the “I Pledge” campaign with Cynthia Kenyon, senior epidemiologist at the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), who has been the liaison between Minnesota colleges and universities and the MDH during this pandemic. Kenyon intends to share the campaign with Minnesota public and private college and university representatives. In her words … “This is great!”
