The election had a 32.6 percent voter turnout with 1,704 students casting ballots, according to Elections Commission Public Relations Chair Paige Newman, a freshman.
Morris, who ran alongside Wilson on identical platforms, said the two new senators plan to bring to their one-semester tenure a focus on academic equity and increased research opportunities.
“Both Tabias and I have worked with various aministrators on ways that we can get more support for research opportunities in various academic fields,” she said last night after the election results were released.
Ramanathan is one of two new elected student representatives to the Committee on Student Life, a group of faculty members and students charged with hearing appeals of decisions handed down by the Judiciary. He said that he looks forward to encouraging more cooperation between the committee and the students it serves.
“I hope to bridge the gap between the the CSL and the student body,” he said.
