ASI invites students to get involved in student government

Brian Melgar, Reporter

  Students involved in Associated Students, Inc. held an event outside of the CSU Bakersfield Student Union on Feb. 25. ASI used this event to bring awareness to what ASI is all about, and showed students how to get involved with elections and other ASI activities.  

  Volunteers had handouts of information along with free food for any students who wished to educate themselves.  

  Aaron Wan, ASI president, said that the purpose of setting up outside of the Student Union was to promote elections and inform students on how to get involved using food.  

  “We got, like, 200 people,” Wan said.  

  Director of Transfer Students Vanessa Chicaiza also helped with the event, handing out informational flyers.  

  “It went really well. We started around noon and we got a lot of people out here,” Chicaiza said.  

   Emilio Alcaraz, a CSUB student, was at the event for the food.  

  “I had no idea ASI was a thing, I don’t really pay attention. But free food definitely got me over here,” said Alcaraz.
