In the 2013 ASUSU elections, junior Doug Fiefia took his education in business and lead- ership beyond the classroom, and as a result was elected ASUSU president.
“I felt I could help ASUSU out and help improve it,” Doug said. “It was also a way to give back to the school that has done so much for me.”
Doug said the skills he has learned through his business administration major helped him market himself and organize an efficient, successful campaign.
After a rule change which banned “couponing” — a practice in which candidates hand out campaign fliers printed on coupons to local businesses, Doug chose to target friends and leaders in other key organizations to gain their support, and then solicited their help campaigning within those organizations.
In the same election, Steven Mortenson, a junior majoring in business administration and marketing, was elected as the new Jon M. Huntsman School of Business senator.
