College of Design seat won with three votes.

Graduate College seats (three) won with 11 votes and a tie for the final two seats at one vote.

Two of the three College of Human Sciences seats won with one vote.

One seat of the six for College of Liberal Arts and Sciences won with 18 votes.

Schilleter/University Village seat won with five votes.

Both Frederiksen Court seats won with three votes.
