Senate meets weekly from 7:30-9:00pm in Blanchard Great Room. All are welcome!!! Representatives from student organizations, residential halls and several other groups in our community attend to Senate to share concerns, ideas, engage in meaningful dialogue, have a platform to raise their voice and vote on decisions.
Becoming a senator is one of the ways to be involved in SGA. (The others ways are to run for Executive Board each Spring and to apply for committees during Committee Yourself Week every semester. To learn more about E-Board and Committees, click the shortcut links on the side.)

Here is how to become a senator:
Each semester, you can run to be the hall senator for the hall in which you live. For more information on that, email our Chair of Halls, Tiffany Lay.
You can also petition for an org you are involved in to have a senator within senate. Courtney Brunson is the wonderful Chair of Orgs. You can contact her to get a Petition Form to fill out with signatures.
