Kate Greer and Julia Dennen were announced as the next Undergraduate Student Government president and vice president Thursday, receiving 82.8 percent of the total vote.

The USG veterans beat write-in candidates Brandon Borgemenke and Max Rosenberg, who campaigned on bringing an outside perspective to the organization.

In total, 3,098 undergraduate student votes were cast, with 2,395 votes for Greer and Dennen and 496 write-in votes.

“A year ago, I never could have imagined this would be my life, but I’m so happy it is,” Dennen said. “I can’t wait to give the next year of my life to this, to this school, to this organization and to the people who have made me who I am.”

Greer, a third-year in European history and German, and Dennen, a third-year in public affairs, centered their campaign on the idea that the administration can make change happen for the students, and the students can be inspired to do it for themselves, Dennen said.

“I’m looking forward to making it happen,” Greer said. “Honestly, that’s what we get to do now that the student body has given us the chance to.”

Greer and Dennen have both been members of USG since their freshmen years.

Inauguration will be held April 2.
