ReimagineTU Wins 2024 TSG Election Against Owls United

Temple has chosen their next Student Body Government. ReImagineTU, led by Ray Epstein, has won the role for the 2024-2025 school year.

Temple Student Government is holding elections from 12:00 a.m., Wednesday April 10th to 11:59 p.m., Thursday April 11th, and the winners of the election will represent the entire student body for the 2024-2025 School Year.

There are two groups running this year, and your vote will decide who wins.

“Temple student government, it’s really like the connection from the student body to the current administration not just like connections from the student body to the administration but also like the local of North Philadelphia,” said Election Commissioner Olivia Anne Eisner.

This year, the two groups running are ReimagineTU, led by Ray Epstein, and Owls United, led by Lily Huynh.

At the debate on Monday, both parties got a chance to talk about the policies they are running on. 

Among the things that ReimagineTU wants to add to campus is a 24/7 Reduced-Price Emergency-Contraception Vending Machine

“It is offered at Student Health Services, but is Student Health Services 24 hours of the day, no. And do you have to talk to somebody about your experience?… Yes, so we’re trying to take out… all of that’s associated all the pressure, and all of the embarrassment that somebody might feel when they’re trying to obtain Emergency contraception,” said Epstein.

One of the platforms that Owls United is running on is Campus Safety.

“I think that if we can increase the lighting, um students can feel safe, especially when people are leaving clubs really late at night, and they go home alone… And I think being seen, in a sense, makes them feel more safe,” said Huynh.

Both parties have policies surrounding meal plans. ReimagineTU is advocating for Meal Plan Sharing and Rollover.

“I want meal swipe sharing, the punishment that’s just been associated with it, to be overturned, and I also want to expand it so that we can have rollover so that the meal your paying for, you have them,” said Epstein.

TSG Policies don’t just apply on campus. Both ReimagineTU and Owls United have ideas that focus on the off-campus environment. Owls United is focused on Waste.

“Holding our students accountable for the waste on off campus. i see how it affects non-Temple communities and i see how it affects Temple communities,” said Huynh.
