Get Involved in the Undergraduate Student Senate
Senator vs. Member-at-Large
A Member-at-Large in Senate may serve on a committee, participate in any committee iniatives, and participate during general body meetings, but may not vote in general body proceedings. A Senator, however, after being elected to represent his/her college (see below for how to become a Senator), may vote.
How to Become a Senator
There are two ways to become a senator:
- Every Spring, the undergraduate students from every college elect senators to represent them.
- If there is a vacancy during the year in your college you can submit a petition [PDF] with 25 signatures from your college.
How to Become a Member-at-Large
You must attend 3 general body meetings of the senate and then be nominated by a senator in your home college.
