We were happy to swear in our new Executive Cabinet on Tuesday night at our annual ASG banquet. Senate, Cabinet and Student Court came together to celebrate our year and all our accomplishments. We swore in Student Court, Executive Cabinet and the Student Body President and Vice President. Former Cabinet members passed down some words of wisdom, and some gifts, to the person who will be holding their position this up coming year. Superlatives were given to several members of Cabinet and Senate. Best Senate Committee was given to the Sustainability Committee and Senator of the Year was given to Kyle Mortimer. Thank you to everyone who made this year a special one, we are ready to see what next year brings!
In random order, here are your 2015/2016 Off-Campus Senators! Thanks to all who voted- we’re looking forward to a great and productive year!

The Associated Student Government’s annual Outstanding Professor Awards Banquet took place this week, honoring 36 faculty members for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to the university and the student body.
Professor Charles Moul, Department of Economics, was selected as the 2015 Outstanding Professor Award Winner. A committee of Student Senators reviewed 41 letters of nomination for the 36 faculty members and selected Dr. Moul as the winner due to his creativity, enthusiasm and dedication to students inside and outside of the classroom.
