Free bus passes, different routes on MSA’s agenda

Student government at the University is spearheaded by the Minnesota Student Association, which represents the undergraduate student body on academic, student life and legislative issues.
Last spring, voters elected Ben Bowman as MSApresident and Matt Clark as vice president. MSA also includes about 60 members from various University groups.
Bowman and Clark plan to address many issues this school year, including reinstating the 10th Avenue Bridge circulator and creating a UPass for students who ride city buses.
MSA maintains three separate standing committees: Student Life, Academic Affairs and Legislative Affairs.
Students interested in becoming involved in student government without running for office are welcome to volunteer to serve on one of these committees. Call the student association at 625-9992 or stop by their office at Coffman Union.
