It seems that too many students are more interested than hitting the books instead of leading their classmates in student government.

According to the Montana Kaimin:

Only 14 students have completed registration forms to run for the Associated Students of the University of Montana — with the deadline to file a week away.

ASUM needs to fill 24 senate seats, the business manager position and the president and vice president positions for the 2013-2014 academic school year. Only one president/vice president team has filed to run, and three students have submitted registration forms for the business manager position.


This reminds me of the time when I went to the community college up in Kalispell and I came across a crumpled up flyer literally BEGGING the students to get active in their student government. So, just for fun, I ran for office. As a result, I became the student body president by DEFAULT because I was literally the only one running.

So, if you want to liven up your resume and gain some fantastic leadership experience (as I did back in my day), I'd highly recommend you apply for office this week as the deadline is quickly approaching.
