Jacob Ludwig, Jaden AhlrichsJacob Ludwig, economics senior, won the Student Government presidential election March 2, 2022. His running mate, Jaden Ahlrichs, global resource systems and horticulture senior, was elected vice president. The pair ran against Bryce Garman, a senior in public relations, and Jay Waagmeester, a junior in journalism and mass communications.

“I think what inspired me to run is just having an amazing experience at Iowa State,” Ludwig, a senior in economics, said. “The opportunity to try and make it even better for future students is what we really want to do.”

The four parts of their platform are increasing affordability, supporting community, investing in sustainability and prioritizing diversity around campus. Ludwig and Ahlrichs said they wanted to focus on things that they had seen up close and personal during their time as students.
