Senate is a place that student ideas and concerns can be brought and solved. We have representatives from all across campus sitting on Senate.Which means you have a specific senator that can help you bring the issues to Senate.
There is no problem too big or too small for Senate to solve. Senate has taken on everything from the Take Back the Tap Initiative to completely redoing our own Elections Bylaws. Our meetings are every Tuesday in the David E. Johnson Boardroom on the third floor of Buntrock Commons at 6:30pm, we can’t wait to see you!
Act.-From meeting with administrators to holding campus-wide events, Senate and SGA will enact changes to ensure our campus is as best it can possibly be for all students. The students on Student Senate care about your ideas and they want to help, but only if we all come together.
Discuss.-Talk through the ups and downs of multiple, diverse issues at our Senate and Subcommittee meetings. Discussion is the first step into getting any problem solved and here we can put in place an action plan to get it done!
Care.-Submit ideas on how St. Olaf could be better at Senate meetings, via email, or even on Oleville! No initiative is too small or too large for Senate to take on.
