THAT MAY SEEM LIKE THE OBVIOUS ANSWER, BUT GETTING IT RIGHT MEANS FAR MORE THAN JUST PREDICTING THE RIGHT CANDIDATE.

Getting it right for us means unifying the Washington and Lee campus and working together as a student body to put on the most accurate undergraduate convention in the country. We work tirelessly to live up to the prestige of the previous conventions and to extend their legacy of excellence into our own convention cycle. Our goal is to orchestrate a grand convention that excites the student body through engaging speakers, beautiful graphics, lively events, high-quality memorabilia, and to top it all off, an accurate prediction.
