Out of 14 candidates for four colleges, six new senators have been elected to The Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i (ASUH).

Three new senators were elected to the College of Arts and Sciences, one to the Hawai‘inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge, one to the College of Engineering and one to the Shidler College of Business. 

Each new senator will serve until May when they face reelection. The School of Ocean, Earth Science and Technology and the School of Pacific and Asian Studies still have one senate seat each that can be filled during ASUH’s spring special election or the general election in May.
