Despite a late start to campaigning, Zach Ogle ’15 said he will rely on his perspectives as a student in USG and in other campus groups to win the campus vote, emphasizing the importance of increased outreach to student groups.
“I’m running for USG president because I feel like USG can do a much better job of reaching out to non-USG students,” Ogle said.
In a break from recent trends, three of the four USG committee chair positions — Campus and Community Affairs Committee,Social Committee and Academics Committee — have contested elections.
With a platform of student outreach, USG senator and presidential candidate Zachary Ogle ’15 called for a focus on best serving the needs of the student body at the USG presidential debate on Wednesday.
Class of 2015 senator Zach Ogle will be allowed to run against USG president Shawon Jackson ’15 in the upcoming presidential elections, the USG Senate decided in a vote on Sunday night.The vote came after Ogle appealed a decision made by chief elections manager Rachel Nam ’15 last Tuesday, in whichshe disqualified himfrom the campaign for failing to submit one Google Doc among several pieces of required paperwork on time.With this decision, current USG president Jackson will no longer be running unopposed for reelection.Ogle handed in his candidate statement and signed petition at 4:55 p.m.

A proposed amendment to the USG constitution would change the relationship between the class councils and the Senate.
Changes could be coming to the University’s final examinations period.USG Academics Committee chair Dillon Sharp ’14 presented a series of recommendations for the final examinations period to the Faculty Committee on Examinations and Standing on Friday.
U-Council Chair Elan Kugelmass ’14 proposed creating a three-member “USG Transparency Committee” at the weekly USG meeting on Sunday evening.
Responding to criticisms he said he’d received from students about how many of the USG’s projects take place outside of the Senate meetings, he said the proposed three-member committee would be an “experiment” with the role of distributing USG information to students who request it.
The role of the committee would not overlap with that of Richard Lu ’16, who currently serves as the USG communications director, Kugelmass said.

The USG has approved a $65,000 funding request from the Social Committee for the fall Lawnparties, according to USG president Shawon Jackson ’15.

According to Jackson, the funding will cover the costs of the main act and supplies needed for the event.
This figure is slightly higher than the $60,000 approved for last spring's Lawnparties but slightly lower than the $70,000 approved for the spring 2012 and fall 2012 Lawnparties, according to figures provided by Jackson.
