By Michael Logli

Paul Schmitt, junior in LAS and former Illini Media employee, was declared the unofficial winner of the race for student trustee. Out of the 10,367 ballots cast, Schmitt defeated his opponent, junior in Business Rob Main, by a vote of 4,242 to 3,554.

All three referenda on the ballot passed, including a ballot to measure student opinions on the reinstatement of the University’s former symbol Chief Illiniwek.
