AMS Elections, Debate, VP Admin

Yesterday, Pooja Bhatti, Faraz Nikzad and Julien Hart participated in the second AMS election debate as part of this year’s VP Administration race. The candidates spoke about issues ranging from club management to building management.


This year’s candidates for VP Administration met once again this afternoon for the Great Debate. In contrast with the last one, this debate saw a deeper discussion of certain topics and more challenging questions from the audience.
