Hudson Kraus

Receiving almost sixty percent of the more than 11,600 votes, Hudson Kraus (Epsilon Delta–Texas A&M ’00) was elected the 2023-24 Student Body President of Texas A&M University in March. Hudson said that his campaign focused on connecting to culture, creating opportunities for students, and cultivating the Aggie spirit.

“I am excited to continue to unite the student body, and implement tangible solutions that positively impact every student here at Texas A&M,” Kraus said.

His campaign platform focused on tangible and specific goals to improve student life like electronic IDs and sports passes, “academic rest days,” free scantrons, highlighting student organization and campus involvement opportunities, and educating students about Aggie traditions.

From Dallas, Texas, Hudson is entering his senior year studying business administration and pre-law. Kraus has served as a member of the SGA’s mental health task force and is the current president of the Interfraternity Council. In addition to leading 1,800 fraternity men in collaborating with the other Greek life councils as IFC President, he spearheaded the creation of a $26,000 Scholarship Endowment Fund and revamped the IFC professional development t program.

He is an Aggie and KA legacy with his mother Jamie and father Trevor (Epsilon Delta–Texas A&M ’92) both attending Texas A&M. Additionally, both of Hudson’s brothers also currently attend Texas A&M.

“It’s definitely a family tradition,” Hudson commented.
