ASUH Recap: Apr. 6, 2016

The Associated Students for the University of Hawai’i (ASUH) elections for the Spring 2021 semester results are in.

The ASUH is made up of four executive officers, four senators-at-large and 30 college senators. This group of students are representatives and student advocates for making decisions regarding transacting business funds, adopting annual budgets, promoting participation by students in campus activities and many other student-fee funded activities on campus.

One ballot gave students the opportunity to select who they wanted for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and the other was for their choice of college senators. Ballots were counted on April 19 at 4 p.m.
