Exercise Your Voting Right
April 12, 2011 § Leave a comment
This week is voting week for Student Senate officers. Voting for Student Senate is essential to make sure you are represented during Senate meetings. Officers also work to improve the university, specifically the campus and all academic fields. Are you involved in a club? Senate helps clubs by distributing funding to them and making sure they are all treated fairly.
The Senate executive board is made up of three members—President, Vice President, and Treasurer. There are also 28 senators as well as affiliate positions. In addition, Senate has four committees: Academic Affairs, Student Services, Community Affairs and Student Activity Fee Committee. Senate meets once a week, on Wednesdays at 5 pm in the purple rooms of Kryzsko commons. The meetings are open to students and all students are strongly encouraged to attend.
Voting will be from Monday, April 11, through Thursday, April 14. Each student will receive an email with a link to the voting page. Before voting, learn about the candidates that are running. Each candidate has a statement online.
In last year’s Student Senate election, less than 1,000 students voted out of over 8,000 students that attend WSU. Let’s make it over 8,000 students of over 8,000 students for 2011.
Please take a few minutes to review the candidate statements and vote (log-in required). Your contribution helps make WSU a better place for you!
