What is Senate?
The purpose of the Legislative Branch is to serve as BSG's Board of Directors. Our Senate is comprised of 12 Senators that were elected to represent you. There are 8 general Senators and 4 Club Council Senators. General Senators are typically elected by the entirety of the student body during the election season that takes place at the end of the previous academic year. Club Council Senators are elected by the members of clubs within their respective Club Council. Elected Officers of all BSG recognized clubs are also included in the Legislative Branch. All Senators are required to serve on at least 3 committees, which could be any combination of campus wide, faculty, town, or BSG standing committees. Any student may attend standing committee meetings of BSG. Students are also welcomed to attend our weekly Senate meeting which takes place on Friday at 4:00pm, typically in Union 119.
