General engineering freshman Duncan Poling, the newly-elected freshman class president, released a statement announcing his election win.

Poling said he encouraged freshmen to speak with him for feedback to help fulfill his duties.

“Once again I am incredibly excited to see what our class accomplishes,” Poling said.
