The UC Student Association elected UC San Diego senior Raquel Morales as the association’s new president Saturday, following the resignation of its former president last week.
Morales previously served on the board as a legislative liaison from UCSD, a position with no voting capacity. She is currently studying international studies and Latin American studies at UC San Diego, according to her UCSA biography.
The association, which represents students across the UC system, held a special election at its Saturday meeting to fill the vacant position after former UCSA president Angelica Salceda resigned last week. Salceda cited personal reasons for her decision to step down.
