After a rigorous three-day selection process, Swamp Party is proud to present a full slate of 50 Senate candidates after a record-breaking number of students interviewed to become student representatives.
Among the 674 students that interviewed to become candidates, 82 percent chose to interview with the Swamp Party.
With a record turnout of more than 550 interviewees, the party had an 11 percent candidate acceptance rate, ensuring that the party put forth the most well qualified, experienced and diverse group of student representatives possible.
Swamp Party successfully completed its first day of platform generation yesterday as well.
As a party that directly generates a platform for the students by the students, Swamp Party spent the day in Turlington and the Reitz Union asking students what they want their representatives to accomplish in the following year.
Tomorrow you can find our candidates out there again! We encourage you to voice your opinion and influence our party’s decisions!
Thank you for your continued support and Go Gators!
