BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The president of the Montana State University student government has resigned after being censured for a DUI arrest in August.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1VdiHKe ) agriculture student Gwynn Simeniuk wrote an open letter to students on Wednesday saying she was resigning as president of the Associated Students of Montana State University, effective on Oct. 1.

Vice president Levi Birky will succeed Simeniuk and appoint a new vice president who must be confirmed by the student senate.

Simeniuk was arrested on Aug. 16 at 3 a.m. after an officer saw her getting into a running car parked on a sidewalk. Her case is still pending.

Simeniuk apologized to fellow students and was censured by the student senate last week. They did not call for her resignation, but asked her to give up her tuition waiver for the second semester.
