At Issue: Class of 2015 presidential election
Our Take: Vote for Ben Halls
Most freshman are experiencing life on their own for the first time, still reeling from the experience of leaving home. They are in the midst of finding themselves and realizing what their college lives are going to consist of. You’re learning how to drink, how to manage your time, and how to work in an elevated social environment. Ben Halls provides something different.

But because he lives in the dorms and is often seen mingling with his freshman peers, it is clear that he is connected to his class.

It is for these reasons that we endorse Halls for class of 2015 president.
