Legislative

​Senate

In order for SGA to serve as the voice of every bulldog, we need a multitude of voices. The loudest of those are our senators, who advocate on behalf of their academic colleges (college senators) or on behalf of a student group they are appointed to represent (student life senators). Senators meet weekly on Tuesdays in Senate and Legislative Committees, in addition to serving in leadership positions in many other campus organizations.

During the Spring 2019 semester, the Senate will be meeting on Tuesdays in MLC 350 at 7 PM.
