STUISA election

By Kaori Inui

The St. Thomas University’s International Student Association annual general election got underway yesterday, and are ongoing today.

Sabrina Sotiriu of Romania and Gustavo Chavez of Ecuador are running for president.

“I have grown to be appreciated and respected on campus for everything that I have done for the STU community, so if I get elected, you will have a President of whom you will be proud to have and that will have a great presence among other clubs and societies and the administration and faculty,” Sotiriu wrote in her Facebook group.

Gustavo Chavez’s campaign emphasizes success. He says he wants every international student to succeed academically and outside the classroom.

“What is most important is that I am an international student like you all, who has been looking to succeed within this community of both Canadians and internationals,” he said.

He also said international students should show off their cultures and also relate themselves to Canadians.

There are six positions to be elected for in the next school year, and all of them but the Social Convener and Treasurer are competitions between two or three people.

The STUISA’s board members will play a central part in organizing events that display different cultures from abroad for Canadians and also international students at STU.

The events include the annual multicultural fair, which is the biggest culmination of cultures on campus.

The election result will be revealed tomorrow.
