About the Positions
The Students' Association Senate is the legislative body of student government. Charged with the task of bettering student life, the Senators works to pass legislation and oversee the operation of student organizations. Comprised of four standing committees: Appropriations, Projects and Services, Policy and Review, and Communications and Public Relations, the Senate aims to advocate for all students. If you are interested in getting involved but do not want to run as a Senator, you can also apply for an appointed position in SA Government.
Class Councils (PDF) are programming groups that promote class unity and school spirit by planning events and creating traditions. Each graduating class elects eight representatives to their respective Councils.
If you are interested in getting involved in SA Government, but do not want to run as a Senator, you can also apply for an appointed position in SA Government by contacting the President.
