Thank you for your interest in the Grand Valley State University Student Senate. There are many ways that you can become involved with YOUR Student Senate.
Speak your Mind
The Senate convenes every Thursday for a meeting of the General Assembly. All members of the campus community are welcome to observe and/or address the Senate during General Assembly meetings. There are three opportunities (beginning, middle, and end) for public comment at each meeting. Meetings typically last 1-2 hours. Check our schedule for times and locations.
While programming is not our primary focus, the Senate does host a few of its own events including Last Lecture and University Leadership Round Table. On a larger scale, Student Senate collaborates with the Laker Traditions Team and other student organizations to host campus-wide events such as the Battle of the Valleys charity competition and Presidents' Ball. We depend on the efforts of numerous volunteers to make our beloved campus traditions possible each year.
Sit On A University Committee
The Senate makes appointments to many University Committees. These committees focus on a number of topics ranging from academic to campus issues to positions on the University Judiciary Board. If you are interested in serving as a student representative, please call the Student Senate office at (616) 331-2333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
