Slating interviews for Student  Senate positions with the Unite Party and the Student Alliance party will come to an end Tuesday at 5 p.m.

The Unite Party interviewed 45 students, and the Student Alliance Party interviewed 61 students.

Fifty Senate seats are available.

Nick Mildebrath, campaign manager for the Student Alliance party, said his party has interviewed enthusiastic students with new ideas for Student Government.

He said he is excited so many potential candidates have come by to slate.

“It doesn’t matter how great your platform is if you don’t have anybody good running on it,” Mildebrath said.

Unite Party spokesman Ben Meyers said the Unite Party interviewed more students on Monday than it did on Friday.

Meyers said he is impressed with the leadership experience of the students who have been interviewed.

He said the Unite Party has a lot of great potential candidates.

“We’re looking for diversity,” Meyers said. “We’re looking for a great set of viewpoints that represent campus as a whole.”

UF freshman Dara Schopp, who slated with the Unite Party, said she wants to become more involved with the Unite Party because it has done so much progressive work on campus.

“I just like being a part of something that stands for positive change,” Schopp said.

Michael Crowley, a UF aerospace engineering senior, chose to slate with the Student Alliance party because he wants to bring UF’s College of Engineering more recognition from SG.

“I feel like the Student Alliance really is a party that has the students’ interests at heart,” Crowley said.

Supervisor of Elections Ariana Alfonso said that the Action Party and the Valence Party are also registered for the spring election but did not conduct interviews.
