Diamond Brown, a junior political science major, and Thomas Marshall, a junior English major, are running for student body president and vice president, respectively. Their platform operates under the slogan "Elevate" and features three main ideas: raise, empower, soar. We caught up with Brown and asked her some questions about herself and the campaign...all while eating progressively hotter wings.

The top five aspects of Brown and Marshall's campaign, as described by themselves, are below. Primary elections are on Feb. 27 and last until midnight.

  1. Student life serves as the core of Brown and Marshall’s campaign. They want to focus on all the aspects of it that impact students.

  2. Community building helps “to foster an environment that is fun and engaging for all students,” as Brown said.

  3. Academics are crucial, so all seven colleges will have two salient issues that Brown and Marshall will focus on should they be elected. The list of issues are available on their website and range from more professional opportunities for CAAH to more tutors for the College of Business.

  4. Everyday “things” make the world go round, so Brown and Marshall will attempt to focus on and improve the simple parts of students’ lives, such as transportation or ticketing for different events.

  5. Cross-collaboration benefits all parties involved, and if student leaders begin to work together more, the entire university will benefit. Brown and Marshall recognize this and would prioritize it in office.

Brown and Marshall can be found at their website, on Instagram or on Twitter.
