With every incoming class of freshmen comes the freshman council elections. This year, voting was held from Jan. 20 to Jan. 23, with the officers announced the following week. The elected council consists of President Candy Thong and officers Matthew Chan, Kelly Diep, Leslie Gutierrez, Hannah Huapaya, Vivianne Lam, Brandson Le, Sandy Nguyen and Charlotte Ong.
