SGA President and Vice President, Tristan Fielder and Emily Hecox, respectively, fulfilled one of their campaign promises of making Scantrons once again free to students.

"Now when students go to take an exam, everything will be there. All we have to bring is a pencil," Fielder said.

Since the program was discontinued in the fall 2016, a budget was needed to be calculated.

"They were spending way over budget than what they budgeted for, so we had to reassess the budget," Hecox said

A lot of research was done on the quantity of Scantrons that was being ordered in the past.

"We poured over the data and realized what it was going to take to make it happen," Fielder said.

They were able to find a vendor that would give them a cheap price.

"Luckily our administration was nice enough to find money for us to make this happen," Fielder said.

After the Scantrons were ordered, a process was created for department coordinators to order them.

Fielder and Hecox had to determine what limits to set.

Hecox said she is proud because their whole campaign was running off of Scantrons.

"I think a lot of politicians that run, in general, promise things they can’t deliver on. We didn’t want to promise anything we knew we couldn’t deliver," Hecox said.

Hecox said all their projects they ran on will get done whether it happens immediately or if they have to pass it down to whoever comes into office next.

Fielder said they have been getting a lot done already.

"It’s fuel to keep us going. Every small success pushes us to the next," Fielder said.

Fielder said him, Hecox and their senate should be able to do accomplish a lot this year as a team and improve life at ASU.

Sophomore Alexandria Haag said the Scantron promise was a smart idea because students already have a lot of things to pay for.

"Now it’s one less thing we have to worry about," Haag said.

Fielder and Hecox have many projects going to make ASU a better place,

"Everything is a process, change takes time," Hecox said. "We are just lucky our administration is so open minded and willing to work with us.
