With the campaign slogan “Dream BIG,” Bobby Haddix and Caroline McKinney have won the 2014 Purdue Student Government presidential race.  Current PSG president Kyle Pendergast hopes the two candidates will “represent the student population in the best way possible.”

According to President-elect Haddix, dreaming BIG (Boilermakers, Inclusion, Growth) is “having the courage to pursue your dreams no matter how crazy everyone else thinks they are.” Vice President-elect McKinney believes  it is ‘having that big idea that you’re passionate about and doing whatever it takes to go after it until it’s accomplished.”

Dreaming BIG

Boilermakers: Every student should have not only a college experience, but a Boilermaker experience.

Inclusion: Connecting international and domestic students, Greeks and non-Greeks, and student organizations.

Growth: as an individual, a community, and growth in representation.

According  to the Purdue Exponent, 5,107 total votes were cast which was 301 fewer votes than last year. Voter turnout was shy of PSG’s goal of 8,000 votes by a wide margin, despite get out the vote efforts such as electronic polling stations, social media campaigns (@HaddixMcKinney | @StevenAndJoe14), and highly produced videos.
