Student Senate

In one of my earlier blog posts I talked about The Writing Center and why I enjoyed working there. Now, I want to talk about another awesome job that I have on campus: Student Senate.

Before I was a part of Student Senate, I complained avidly about Student Senate and the way they ran things. My motivation for joining the organization was to see how things were conducted from the inside. I believe that if one is to complain about something, then she should try it out for herself. It’s not cool to dislike something you are ignorant about. I can confidently say that I am no longer and avid complainer. Student Senate faces challenges every Sunday night when student organizations come and request money from us.

The biggest challenge we face this academic year is a reduced budget. Because of this newly reduced budget, Student Senate is not able to fund programs the way we have in the past. My Senate¬†colleagues are all amazing and extremely smart individuals. Whenever we are presented with a money request, the Senate converses and debate about how much money we should allocate per request. I implore anyone to join Senate. It’s an amazing way to build a resume and learn about the ins and outs of budgeting.
