This year’s SGA elections have just begun! For the next couple of weeks, you will be seeing a lot of campaign flyers around and candidates introducing themselves. There are a total of 13 candidates running for different positions. You can review their names and statements by clicking here.
This is both an exciting and important time period, so please remember that your voice matters and vote responsibly! Pay close attention to the candidate statements and try to meet them in person before you vote. To make this easier for you, we are going to have all of the candidates attend to our Welcome Party on September 8th. To find out more about our Welcome Party, read below.

On our last #SocialWednesday we mentioned a tiny little surprise we organized for our new students. We handed out over a hundred GGU Social handouts last week and five out of the batch we handed out had a stickers on their backs saying “Today is your lucky day!”; however, we heard back from only one lucky student so far! If you have a copy of the handout, make sure to check and see if you were one of the lucky ones and follow the directions on the sticker to claim your free t-shirt!
