Gettysburg College's Student Senate is the primary governing and coordinating organization of the student body. Senate plays a critical role in representing student perspectives in the discussion of all campus issues. The Senate Body is comprised of seven Senators for each class year, elected respectively by their class, as well as an Executive Committee elected by the entire student body. These positions offer students not only a great opportunity to get involved in the college community, but valuable leadership experience as well. Senate meetings provide a forum for discussion about the concerns of the campus, both large and small, and utilize committees to respond to these concerns accordingly. Senate also oversees all Senate Recognized clubs and organizations on campus. These organizations have access to funding, publicity, and other resources that benefit their programmatic goals.
