On Monday, executive alliance candidates, along with candidates for university wide representative and Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Texan, attended a debate hosted by the Daily Texan.


At the Student Activity Center, candidates for President and Vice President of the university shared their platforms and questioned the other students on their policies. The candidates primarily talked about the importance of increasing student engagement and how they would counteract the negative reputation that Student Government has accumulated.


Here is part two of the profiles of the six executive alliance candidates who attended.


Bryce and Vikram


Bryce Fuller is the founder and President of the Quantum Computing Initiative at UT Austin, an Undergraduate researcher with the Akinwande Nanotechnology Group and an ECE Undergraduate Advisory Board Computer Engineering Representative.


Vikram Sundaram is the founder and former President of The Classic Society, an organization which strived to promote debate and discussion on campus.


Parts of their platform include the creation of an ambassador program in which representatives from each student organization will attend a weekly coffee chat and the promotion of civil discourse throughout campus. The rest of their platform will be left to students with concerns.

Austin Goss currently serves as Capitol Correspondent for Empower Texans and Texas Scorecard, and as a member of the Army ROTC program and the Young Conservatives of Texas chapter
