MSU Student Affairs and Services Division conducts student feedback surveyJack Armstrong

A survey recently conducted by MSU’s Student Affairs and Services Division, which includes the Career Services Network and the Department of Student Life, allowed students to offer feedback on the Division.

The survey was sent out to all MSU students via email. With the aim to assess its “strengths, challenges, limitations, and potential future,” according to the email. The survey gauged students awareness of the many units within the Division as well as how welcoming the Student Services building is. Patricia Marin, chair of the Program Review for the Division, hopes to meet one-on-one with students who have additional answers to provide.

ASMSU holds debate between 3 candidates for presidentJared Ramsey

On April 12, the Associated Students of Michigan State University held a debate between three candidates running for ASMSU president on Monday, prior to the General Assembly elections this week.

The three candidates are environmental economics and agribusiness management junior Nikunj Agarwal, international relations and political theory and constitutional democracy junior Georgia Frost, and political science sophomore Julian Trevino.

Each candidate was asked 10 questions. The questions covered two main topics; qualities of a good student leader and the future of ASMSU if the candidate is elected.

One of the main topics of debate was how each candidate would work to represent the student body during MSU’s return to campus in the fall.

The three candidates expressed a desire to build a stronger connection with the Michigan State administration and local government officials to increase its representation for students.

The three-day voting period include the election of the new vice president for finance and operations on April 13, the new vice president for academic affairs and vice president for governmental affairs on April 14 and the new vice president for internal administration and vice president for student allocations on April 15.
