Students involved in the Student Senate will have the opportunity to participate in various college activities, gain self-confidence, and develop leadership potential. Students will develop skills in:
In order to be elected you must have a GPA of 2.0 or higher and be registered for at least 9 credits. You then would need to stop by the Office of Student Life to get the specific election dates. You will be given a nomination form, which you will need to get signed by 35 students if you are running for a senator, or 50 signatures if you are running for an officer’s position. This needs to be returned to the Office of Student Life and your eligibility placed on the ballot. If elected, your term of office will begin immediately following the elections and continue through the spring semester.
Elections are held each semester. In the spring semester, senators and officers are elected. Fall elections are held in late September when vacant officer positions may be filled, as well as all senator positions. Students are elected for the full academic year, September through May.
Maintain a GPA of 2.0, and attend Student Senate meetings every Monday from 2:00–3:15pm while school is in session (with possible alternate meetings held Fridays from 2:00–3:15pm). Attendance is mandatory.
