The 2015-2016 Senate and Finance Board are currently seeking a qualified candidates to fulfill the position of Secretary to take minutes at all official meetings. 

The Senate is SGA's engine for collecting ideas from students and turning them into campus change initiatives.  Members meet weekly (Mondays at 5:30 p.m.) to discuss and develop initiatives, talk with campus administrators and take positions on issues.

The Finance Board is the branch of SGA that provides funds to support student organization activities: nearly $200,000 this year.  Most of the Finance Board's work is done at weekly meetings, where student organization leaders present requests and Finance Board members ask questions and make decisions.  These meetings, which take place Tuesdays starting at 5:30 p.m., can be both long and intense. But they have a lot of fun too, partly because it's so interactive and engaging.


The deadline to apply for these positions is September 15th, 2015!
