Please remember that you cannot begin campaigning and/or fundraising until you’ve declared your candidacy, are deemed eligible by the Office of Student Engagement, and attend one of the Campaign Information sessions.  If you are unable to make it to the sessions, please contact the Chief Justice of the FUSA Court, Claire Monahan.
