Hey Improviseurs,
Please take a look at the information below on
University elections. This is important to us because
it determines all the people that make decisions about
our money and resource (cameras, karaoke, etc.)
allocations in the fall. The current administration
has done a lot to provide more services to students
and to us as an organization. To maintain the same
stellar service next year, vote Chelsea and Kenah.
Chelsea is the current VP and has been integral in
changes this year. It is important to get out our vote
because all the candidates are working to mobilize
their voters. We want to be sure we do all we can for
the candidates we each want.

Thanks for reading,
