This year, the Representative Council has decided, among other things, on the hiring of the new Executive Director, the future of Aino magazine and changes to the Student Union's Constitution .

Edustajistovaalien voittajiin kuuluu Vihreämpi Aalto -ryhmä, joka kolminkertaisti paikkamääränsä edellisiin vaaleihin nähden. Myös Pro Arte ja Kylterirengas nostivat kummatkin paikkamääräänsä yhdellä.
