The Student Senate is composed of 40 senatorial seats, of which 20 are Fall seats and 20 are Spring seats. Senators are charged with the great responsibility of serving as a voice of the student body and representing the best interests of the student in both fiscal and statutory matters. More specifically, Senators have the ability to allocate the $4.5 million dollar Activity and Service fee budget, draft legislation, amend or create statutes, and vote on both fiscal and legislative bills.
