The Associated Students of Madison swore in the 26th session and held leadership elections Wednesday night.

The council opened its first meeting of the new session by  recognizing that the University of Wisconsin sits on sacred Ho-Chunk land.

They then moved to open forum where 34 people signed up to speak either for themselves as candidates running for a leadership position or as an endorsement for those candidates.


The 45-minute session was extended for an extra 45 minutes and then was extended once more for an additional 12 minutes.
