Freshman VSA hopefuls debate pressing campus issues

On Tuesday, Oct. 7, students gathered in Rocky 300 to watch the 13 first-year candidates for the Board of Elections and Appointments (BoEA) and VSA positions debate campus issues and their respective goals for their prospective positions. Moderated by the Misc’s News Editors, the debate centered around strengths of the candidates and their ideas. Students brought up several proposals, such as ensuring that Vassar remains need-blind and how to assist students who are both applying and adjusting to campus.
