ASSU President Robbie Zimbroff ’12 M.A. ’13 and Vice President William Wagstaff ’12 M.A. ’13 are nearing the end of their time in office. With less than two months left in their term, Zimbroff and Wagstaff sat down with The Daily to discuss their time in office and what they still hope to accomplish.
