ASMSU elects new president, vice president for finance and operations, and vice president for academic affairs

History and political science junior Connor Le was elected to be the next president of the Associated Students of Michigan State University by the general assembly.

Le served as vice president for internal administration this school year. Before that, he was a representative for the Asian Pacific American Student Organization.

Prior to the vote, Le gave a speech to the general assembly in which he said he wanted to focus on justice and transparency as ASMSU president.

One way Le hopes to prioritize justice is through accountability. Le said previous general assemblies have failed to hold representatives accountable for not representing their colleagues and students correctly.

In response to this, Le hopes to create an ASMSU judicial branch. He also hopes that the 61st assembly, which was elected last week, will hold its peers accountable.

When the gavel strike made the transition official, president Emily Hoyumpa exited her presidential seat, allowing Le to conduct the remainder of the meeting.

Next came the vote for vice president for finance and operations. The assembly elected Delaney Jones, a representative from the Broad Business College.

When Jones took the stand to give her speech, she emphasized that her experience in various groups made her fit for this position. She also shared her values as a leader.

N Crowd intersects student designs and social justice in third annual spring fashion show

Michigan State University’s student-run fashion magazine, N Crowd, hosted its third annual spring fashion show at Demonstration Hall last Saturday night. This year’s theme of the fashion show was “School Kids Aesthetic,” featuring street-styled clothing from at least 15 students and local designers.

Information science senior and N Crowd co-founder Brandon Williams gave a warm welcome to family and friends as they filled the ballroom. Williams thanked the audience for supporting the fashion show, as tickets had officially sold out within a day.

Apparel and textile junior Brendan Sims opened the show by performing his song “Fiendz.” Audience members cheered Sims on as he danced around them.

Despite being in the early stages of the brand, Sims said, creating clothes from donated mixed fabrics brings him joy. The stitching of his signature patchwork is made carefully, and the material is strong, he said.

He noted that many college students struggle with unstable finances, making it difficult to afford their favorite clothing brands. Sims takes their “plain denim looks” and makes them feel like they’re designer.

The models walked down the runway with Sims’ grunge, street look. Four more hip-hop performances by four other artists, including experience architecture junior Kennedy Campbell, filled the event. Students danced and sang along with Campbell, whose artist name is Kenny Moss, to her song, “On My Body!” as she rode around on a decorated hoverboard.
