How can I get involved in Student Government?

There are several ways to get involved in SG:

  • Enter a general election (the legislative election is held each fall, and the executive election is held each spring)
  • Contact your campus Speaker of the House to submit an In-House application to be a House Representative between general elections
  • Contact the Student Body Vice President to apply for any available seats on the University-wide Senate between general elections
  • Join a student government program on your campus such as COSO, SAVI, or Program Board
  • Apply for an executive staff position such as chief of staff, executive aide, treasurer, marketing director, other position as they become available

Direct student government experience is not always necessary, so if you think you would like to be apart of Student Government, give us a call!
