1. Grab a friend and head to the Office of Student Activities. If you don’t have a friend, don’t worry, you’ll make some by getting involved!

2. Find the OSA office! Here are some directions in case you can’t find it. Head down the hallway left of the bookstore. It is directly across from the Live Wire office, on the opposite side of the desk in the hallway. If you hit the gym, you’ve gone too far

3. Get an application. You won’t even have to go into OSA office since the applications should be on the desk in the hallway. If you can’t find any just step in and ask anyone! If on the off chance they don’t know where more are, they will certainly direct you to someone who can help you out.

4. Fill out the application and return it by 4 p.m. on April 11th.

If you are wondering what you will need to complete the application, don’t look any further because this is it. For starters, read the application. You can fill in your banner ID#, address, email, GPA, phone number and current degree program. You will need to write a brief description of you leadership skills and experience, which will be used for your bio as an official candidate.

The hardest part will be to get 25 signatures from registered students. They will need to provide their name and banner ID# for verification. You will also need to attach your schedule and unofficial transcript to your application. Lastly, you will need to sign your application in a few designated places and return your application by the application deadline.

A few other tips and considerations

• Make sure that you meet all of the requirements for a position before returning an application.

• If you are not sure what to run for, pick up a description of position roles while you’re getting the application.

• You must be a full-time student (12-credits) for both the Fall ’14 and Spring ’15 semester.

• If you are applying for multiple positions, you must fill out a separate application for each and every position.

• Students can sign for multiple possible candidates for any position, even if the same.

• Don’t forget to look at and write down important dates from the Election Schedule.

If you are looking to get involve, add to your resume, step out of your box, make friends, or see what the MCC student leadership community is all about, then seriously consider running for a position on the Student Government Association Executive Board. If you decide not to run though, you can still have a say in your community by voting, so don’t forget to vote!
