If you could describe Student Senate in one word what would it be? We decided to ask this to our Senators of the 2015/2016 Senate. These were their answers, what will be yours?

What is Student Senate?

As the official student government, Grand Valley State University's Student Senate works to ensure that the voice of the students is continually heard by the University.

The Student Senate is comprised of 50 students who each serve on one of seven different committees. These seven committees work to enhance student life, academics, and the overall student experience at Grand Valley. Click through the navigation at the top of the page to learn more about each committee.
