Brooke Arnell of Team Impact managed to split the team ticket, something that hasn't happened in six years, and win the VP of Student Clubs spot. "During the entire campaign we knew it was going to be close, but I don't think anyone knew it was going to be this close," said Bassi last Wednesday night after the election results were read. "The other two teams ran such good campaigns.. .this is amazing."Phil Clegg, who is the director over student life and leadership, said he has never seen such a close race. "Usually we can kind of tell by Tuesday night who is going to win as the results start Number of votes separating 1st and 2nd place. coming in," Clegg said. "But this one was crazy, it really came down to a handful of votes." Swen Swenson, the current student body president was also surprised by the election. "I was amazed at how close this was. I was really proud of the Joes (Joe Allen and Joe Smiley of Joe Squared). To only have two guys and to do as well as they did is pretty impressive." Student government newcomer Allen said that despite the loss he sees the entire process as a victory. "We learned a lot this time... I think with a full team and another year of experience that we will have a pretty good shot next year." Bassi said that he doesn't know what to think about his team being split, but is looking forward to the challenge. "Lewis (Chidziva) is so vital to the success of our platforms. He will definitely have a place with us." As for Brooke Arncll be ing a part of his executive staff Bassi said, "I know Brooke. I have known her since she first started in student government. She definitely knows her stuff, she is great with clubs, and she's a go-getter. I think it will work out perfectly." According to the records kept by student government, this election had above average participation. "Lat year about 10 percent of the student body voted, and the year before that it was over 13," Swenson said. The national average for college government elections fluctuates between five and 10 percent. Swenson might still be the acting student body president, but that doesn't mean Bassi doesn't have anything to do. This week he will start lobbying on behalf of students, and soon he will need to have his student council formed. Swenson thinks Bassi's biggest task might be getting the members of student government to forget the elections, and get on with the work at hand. "Right now he has to work with everyone. Some people supported him, some supported the other teams, and he has to get everyone on the same page. He has to make sure that the transition from this year to next year goes as smooth as possible." .. ...,...J" Jim Bassi and two other members of his team won last week's student government elections by a narrow margin.

Tickets are $10 and $7 with a student ID. The play, which writer Eve Ensler created after interviewing thousands of women from all walks of life, has become something of a worldwide phenomenon.UVSC's Gender Studies Club is putting on the pia-yas part of an effort to raise money for local organizations that help women who have been the victims of violence. "One of the most significant things I've heard about the Vagina Monologues," said Errin Julkunen who is the president of the Gender Studies Club, "Is how many women see it, and afterwards want to discuss personal experiences with domestic violence, rape, incest, sexual abuse and other issues of violence against women." Julkunen has received many telephone calls from people in the community telling her that putting on the Vagina Monologues in the ProvoOrem area is inappropriate. But she says that she sees the play as an opportunity to raise awareness.. "Many of the topics discussed in the play are not necessarily pleasant conversation fodder," Julkunen said. "However the less we talk about these issues as a community, the more difficult it is for individuals to talk about their ownexperiences." y By Zachary Fraser t'tti'ttsSiiif After eight months of speculation, travel, and campaigning, Jon Huntsman Jr. officially announced on March 8 his intentions to run for governor of the state of Utah. Huntsman's announcement was made outside of UVSC's McKay Events Center as part of a statewide rollout.

"This campaign is not about mindless rhetoric, this campaign, this year' in 2004, is about your futures," Huntsman said, to a crowd of primarily college-age students. "It's about higher education, it is about public education, it's about the economy that ositsiisii throws list in ntmml siio st ilfSE your about to graduate into." Huntsman stuck to his theme of promoting the future of the state, primarily in leading resurgence with the economy, and encouraging involvement in politics. "If you don't get involved in what's going to be a debate and a dialog about your future, then your missing a huge opportunity," Huntsman said. Complete with free pizza, drinks, t-shirts, and the band Yours Truly, Huntsman focused his Orem visit on the college atmosphere. The rollout was to continue throughout the state, with stops planned in Ogdcn, Logan. St. George, Cedar City, Fillmore, Price, Vernal, and Midsvay.
