The Student Government represents the student body through popular election. Tgis body serves as a collective voice of the students in student affairs, academisc, safety, and various other areas of the university. They are repeatedly appointed as student representatives on faculty and administrative committees, bringing the student voice to forums where it is heard.
The SGA consists of 30 senators who are elected to a one year term in the spring semester: three from each of the four classes; one each for residential students and one for communters; and twenty from the five colleges based on proportions. Students are encouraged to participate actively in Student Government committees.
