- SDSU President Elliot Hirshman
- Associated Students President Rob O' Keefe
- Sundt representative Jamie Frye
Those unable to attend the ceremony will be able to witness the topping off from any area surrounding the project fenceline at 11:30 a.m.
Viewers of the topping off are invited to share any photos of the event on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #AztecStudentUnion.
