The Guelph-Humber Student Association held its first annual Campaigning Day in the atrium on March 16.

All candidates campaigning for an executive or program representative position on the GHSA were invited to meet students, share their platforms and advocate on their own behalves.

Students running for president, the four vice president spots and seven program representatives met with students all afternoon.

“It’s a one-stop shop for student voters,” says Liana Acri, GHSA’s Assistant Electoral Officer.

“With everyone out at the same time, it brings more attention to candidates,” says Sunny Dhillon, Chief Electoral Officer.

Tables were set up, filling the atrium, and colourful signs were posted. Volunteers handed out sweets such as lollipops and brownies to attract students.

“Campaigning Day is great because it puts faces to names,” says Vanessa Silaphet, a third year Business student running for Vice President of Finance.

In previous years, students campaigning had to find their own face-time with students and promote their platform on their own time.

“Many students don’t know how to book out a table in the atrium, or where to start when it comes to campaigning,” says Dhillon.
