Class of 2020 Election
Permanent officers of the Class of 2020 will be elected Wednesday. At the start of the first afternoon class, a ballot will be passed out to allow class members to mark their choice. Voting should take no more than three or four minutes.
All nominations and voting will be for the office of President. The candidate who gets the most votes will be declared the winner. The first runner-up will become class Vice President, and the next three runners-up will join the President and Vice President as members of the Student Advisory Council for the full three years.
Nominations must be printed on the forms which are available at your first class this afternoon–the name, title, bank and town of the nominee–and signed by the person making the nomination. The nominee must also sign to indicate willingness to serve if elected. Non-conforming nominations will be tossed out. Nominations must be turned in to your Faculty member today or ECA Activity Center no later than 6:00 pm tomorrow.
What Do the Class Officers Do?
Here are some of the heavy responsibilities class officers take on their shoulders by virtue of their election to high office and membership on the Student Advisory Council.
Council members meet with GSB officials at least twice during the session to talk about how things are going, and to discuss questions or comments they may bring from members of their class. Students are encouraged to seek out their representatives with any concerns so we can keep open lines of communication throughout the session.
Each class is free to run its business in its own way. Some years there may be a special t-shirt. That is entirely voluntary and up to the group. The GSB office can help with arrangements but has no direct involvement with planning or expenses. At graduation, the class President is traditionally called on for brief remarks — the briefer the better — on behalf of the class. After graduation, class reps are asked to serve terms on the GSB Alumni Advisory Council to promote the interests of the School within their respective states.
Alcohol on Campus
The University has implemented rules regarding the consumption of alcoholic beverages on campus. These rules will be rigorously enforced. Alcoholic beverages may not be consumed in public areas on the campus, including the lobbies, parking lots, balconies, patio areas and grassy areas surrounding the apartments. We are guests on the LSU campus and must comply with these rules. Your cooperation is appreciated.
LSU REC Center Sign-Up
AFTER class today through Friday those who wish to take advantage of the Sports Center can sign up for one week at $35 or two weeks at $50. The center is a state-of-the-art facility and you will find all the “tools” you will need to keep in shape. GSB has nothing to do with this. Sign up Monday – Friday (May 21 – 25) from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm at the Rec. Center.
