    i love that you can tell that most people just chose randomly.

  2. Nonsense  

    Barnard is a school for strong, beautiful women. Clearly the school must be led by the strongest and most beautiful of the lot.

    I think these elections are a sham and the process ought to be replaced by a wrestling match and a beauty pageant.

    sherlock. the winners are all girls because it's a girl's school and only girls ran.

    The American Student Government Association tracks voter turnout in student government elections. The average for private institutions is 15-20%. So Barnard is double that.
