It's that time of the year again and campaign week for SGA has arrived.

People have taken over social media networks in hopes of reaching as many students as possible with their platforms and winning their elected positions.

Campaign week is great for those not running as well. The competition is always fierce and this means free candy and cake all week!

Aside from the freebies, I'd like to see what people have to offer to the university and to myself before I cast my vote. We have to remember that the people we elect represent our school as a whole, therefore we need to look at the candidates as real people.

Look into their backgrounds. Try to get to know them as people outside of their campaign. Don't vote for anyone because he or she had the best cake or the nicest posters. Vote for someone you feel will uphold the university to the best of his or her ability.
