Ryan Rinaldi with the Future TU platform won the Temple Student Government elections, announced Thursday morning. Rinaldi will serve as student body president for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The Future TU team also includes vice president of services Brittany Boston and vice president of external affairs Binh Nguyen.
