Last Thursday night, new and old senators gathered in the SGA office to hear who will serve as ULM’s government for the next school year.

The new senate is 55 percent male senators and 45 percent female senators. The new senate is also 90 percent students who participate in Greek life and 10 percent non-Greek.

Many Senators also participate in various other student life organizations.

Marc Anthony Calhoun, who will serve as president for the next term, is excited about how the new senate will change ULM.

“I’m looking forward to a great year. We are students serving students, and we plan to make a very big impact for everyone to see, including our community and our school as a whole,” Calhoun said.

Calhoun, currently serving as SGA’s Treasurer, is a senior biology major and is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.

Chris Adkins will serve as Vice President next term.

There is a run-off for the Treasurer position between Bryson Belaire and Chelsea Wyatt. There is also a run-off for the Secretary position between Kaitlin Neal and Casey Honeycutt.

Run-off voting will be Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Some of this could still possibly change, because of run-offs. Associate senators could shift to senator positions, and more people could become Associate Senators,” Jennings said.
