hi warren.

Earlier, On Dit reported on the State Government halving the undergraduate representation on University Council. This came into effect immediately and will take its toll on this year university council elections.

Only ONE undergraduate student will be elected and they will serve a two year term on the newly condensed University Council.

These are your candidates who, if elected, will rub shoulders and limbs with the upper echelons of university elite. Choose wisely.
