Students involved in the Student Senate gain experience in Murray State’s legislative process. Forty-six senators comprise the Student Senate: three from each of the five academic colleges and from the Hutson School of Agriculture, two from the School of Nursing and each of the eight residential colleges, eight “at-large” senators elected through a campus-wide online election each April, and two freshman senators elected in September by the freshman class. Aside from passing legislation at its weekly meetings, the Student Senate provides informational brochures, the campus planner, voter registration and a campus voice (student regent) to the board of regents.  To qualify as a senator, you must maintain a 2.5 cumulative grade point standing during the term of office.
