Student body election results were announced to a crowd of hundreds at Texas A&M University’s Rudder Plaza Friday night. Hudson Kraus ’24, a finance major from Dallas, was chosen as the new student body president for the 2023-24 academic year. Kraus, president of the Texas A&M Interfraternity Council, said he focused on “three Cs” during his campaign: connecting to culture, creating opportunities for students and cultivating the Aggie spirit.

“I am excited to continue to unite the student body, and implement tangible solutions that positively impact every student here at Texas A&M,” Kraus said.

Texas A&M students also voted in five new Yell Leaders: Senior Yell Leaders Ethan Davis ’24, Thomas Greve ’24 and Trevor Yelton ’24; and Junior Yell Leaders Jake Carter ’25 and Grayson Poage ’25. The students were all part of Five for Yell, a group of Yell Leader candidates chosen by the Corps of Cadets to run for Yell Leader as a block. Texas A&M students may vote for any five Yell Leader candidates regardless of their platform.

In total, 11,600 ballots were cast during the election, which is in line with previous years’ voting records, demonstrating a high level of engagement and commitment from the student body. President-elect Kraus won with 4,900 votes, almost 60%, and students elected other candidates to positions such as senior class agents, college senators, and Residential Housing Association president.
