Have what it takes to be a leader on campus?

View the Elections Handbook here to get started. Then, download the Petition and GPA Verification forms below. When ready, go to the bottom of the page to fill out an application.

Further materials:

To run, you must also submit...

  1. The Petition Form: a form requiring you to collect 50 signatures to kick off your bid for office.

    • Note: due to ramping COVID-19 restrictions, you may also use this Google Form to collect signatures electronically. You can send this to people you know individually, but you are not permitted to send this Form over any St. Olaf-affiliated email alias. Be sure to edit your name onto the Form!

  2. The GPA Verification Form: sign on your intention to remain on-campus for the entirety of the 2021-2022 academic year, as well as allow the Office of Student Activities to check the minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA required of a potential candidate.


These materials are to be submitted to the Office of Student Activities (BC 108) by the deadline for applications, which is 5PM CST on April 5th, 2021.
