Major Accomplishments

Continued to advocate for students on a daily basis, helping to pass the Gap Year Bill for the State of New Mexico. We also continued to provide an exceptional level of services to our students including successful events, concerts, and tailgates. We saw an increase in turnout and involvement at all events and aided in school sprit for men's basketball games by hosting tailgates before. We also had a record breaking turnout for our Spring Elections and appropriated $244,500 to student organizations for conference and competition expenses.
