Nick and Cristina win SGA 2017 election


Nick Larkins and Cristina Barreto are the SGA president and vice-president elects for the 2017-2018 school year.

SGA supervisor of elections Jay Faylo announced the winners around 5 p.m. Wednesday evening at the Student Union courtyard. With a total of 11,435 votes cast, Larkins and Barreto won the election with 52.5 percent against Josh Bolona and Jad Shalhoub.

Larkins and Cristina plan on accommodating the student body in many ways, including extending daily shuttle service 45 minutes past the last class time on campus (currently 10:30 p.m.) to accommodate late night students, forging a better relationship with the Veterans Academic Resource Center (VARC), and advocating for more mental health professionals at UCF and provide resources to supplement CAPS, according to their website.
