The new election season for FAU’s Student Government kicked off last week as potential candidates met for the first time to review election guidelines.

Twenty-two students registered Feb. 2 to run for the university-wide president and vice president seats, as well as the Boca, Davie, and Jupiter governor seats. During registration, SG Election Chair Douglas Speed went over the election’s rules and statutes.

The Davie campus governor meet and greet was held yesterday at the Davie Student Union Oasis Lounge.

The students will run throughout the month of February.
