What is the Business Students Association?

The Business Students Association (BSA) has announced its Spring Elections for the upcoming semester. The elections will occur on March 12th during Orientation Week and last from 9 am to 12 pm in the Ballroom A of Union South. This year, two positions are up for election: President and VP of Student Organizations. The candidates for both positions are as follows:


Candidate Position Campaign Website Caroline York, President Casey Bowers, VP Student Organizations


Both candidates have very similar websites, the only difference being their campaign slogans. York seems to focus more on her experience within the BSA, while Bowers highlights his work with various student organizations on campus. Both candidates offer great opportunities for involvement and leadership within the organization, so it is hard to say who is a better candidate.

The BSA Election Process

The Business Students Association (BSA) announces the Spring Elections for its executive board members, senators, and representatives. The deadline to apply is February 1st.

The BSA will elect four executive board members, two senators, and twelve representatives.

They oversee all aspects of the BSA organization, including planning events, lobbying the university for support, fundraising, and more.

The BSA Senate is made up of fifteen students who serve as an advisory body to the executive board on matters such as campus policy development and budgeting. Senators can propose legislation or amendments to BSA policies to improve club operations on campus.

Representatives are responsible for helping their constituents get involved with the club by attending events and representing them at clubs meetings. They also lobby the university for support during club funding negotiations.
