Legislative Branch

The SGA legislative branch consists of a devoted group of students elected by their peers. The student body selects those individuals they feel will best represent the student body. The student senate is broken up into multiple areas of representation. Each college has an elected representative (i.e. College of Communication and Fine Arts, College of Health and Human Services, etc.), as does each residence hall. There are also at-large positions available on the student senate. The composition of the student senate allows all facets of the student body to be positively and adequately represented.
