Congratulations to the new student council members!


The “Call for Candidates” was sent out by Student Services in early September, inviting the student body to participate in the Student Council Elections for the academic year 2020-2021. 


The annual Student Council Elections took a different form this year. A virtual “Meet the Candidates” assembly was organized on 30 September 2020, which was attended by over 80 students.


During the assembly, those running for Student Council President had the opportunity to introduce themselves and talk about their accomplishments, initiatives, and the reasons why they should be elected. The students interacted and engaged with the candidates to learn more about their platforms and to get to know them better.
