February 14, 2006 | Excited candidates filed
in the TSC auditorium Monday to discuss rules
and regulations in beginning this year's ASUSU
"The experience itself is unbeatable, it's worth
it," motivated Quinn Millet, current ASUSU President.

conduct yourself during the elections is a reflection

Laurel Evans, Cam Lee, Noah Riley and Zach Ames,
this year's presidential candidates, all say they
are excited about the upcoming elections and are
looking forward to getting involved.
Cam Lee said he wants to be elected because
he loves working with people and seeing progress
made. He said his main goal if elected is to form
an entrepreneurship program which he said will
connect USU with the world and ultimately increase
funding through better resources.
"Networking, it's all in networking,"
Noah Riley said his main focus is campus unity
through increased club involvement and better
opportunities for involved students.
"Utah State is such a diamond in the ruff
that nobody knows about, it has high quality education
and high caliber. I just want to build it up and
promote it," Riley said.
Laurel Evans said a few of her goals if elected
to office are to get a credit union ATM in the
TSC and lower student fees.
"I care about the students. I care enough
to want them to get involved in the elections
and pick the best candidate," Evans said.
Zach Ames said he feels the main focus should
be to empower students and give them the resources
they need for the future. Ames said he wants to
turn the student center over to the students so
they feel more involved and welcome.
"Don't vote for the names, vote for quality,"
Ames advised students planning to get involved
in the elections.
Campaigning will begin March 1. Candidates encourage
students to get involved in the elections and
