GM Week 2018 Candidate Information

Every year, The Polytechnic produces a special Grand Marshal Week issue that provides information about the week’s festivities and gives the opportunity for candidates for student government offices to present themselves to the student body. Inclusion in this special issue is completely voluntary, although we feel that it is a valuable and efficient way to reach a large number of voters, and we encourage all candidates to take advantage of it. The special issue will be published and distributed across campus on Monday, April 2, 2018.
