Elections began on Wednesday and wrapped up on Friday afternoon.
Bosius takes over from 2019 SGA President Megan Parker.
According to the Westminster College handbook, SGA functions in the same manner as the United States Congress and the executive branch of the U.S. government.
The executive branch includes the student body president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and an appointed cabinet.
The legislative branch consists of senators who are elected each year to represent the students in the College community.
Senators are elected based on class standing. Senators work with the administration and faculty of the College to determine the policies and concerns of Westminster.
The committees were established by SGA to provide a means of communication and cooperation among various interest groups within the College.
