Legislative Branch

The Legislative Branch consists of 52 student senate seats consisting of appointed and elected students. Elections, which take place both in the spring and the fall, act as the voice of the student body. They are responsible for allocating and overseeing the $4.5 million dollar Activity and Service Fee Budget. Each senator is required to serve on various committees in the Senate representing different student concerns.
