Pulse will be ushering in a new plan for CU that focuses on a safe campus environment and less student fees after last week’s CUSG fall election results named them the winning ticket.
Pulse beat the other ticket, Value, and independent candidates in both the ASSG [Arts and Sciences Student Government], Legislative Board and CUSG Representative at Large categories, according to the CUSG website.
According to the CUSG website’s official election results, candidates Kiki Thomas [Legislative Board] and Isra Chaker [Representative] received the most votes for their positions within the Pulse ticket—1,879 and 2,937, respectively.

Pulse won over the student body with their platform, promising “a campus that is more environmental, inclusive, tolerant, and compatible to students and their needs to succeed academically,” according to Pulse’s Youtube video.
Expectations were high for this fall election, especially after last spring’s record-shattering voter turnout. Twice as many candidates than positions entered the election and over sixty first-year students applied for the Freshman Council—setting another record, according to a press release from CUSG.
“This strong commitment to democracy further relates the University of Colorado Boulder and CU Student Government as one of the forefront leaders in promoting discussion and democracy at the university level,” the press release stated.
