As a democratically-elected team, the Morningside College Student Senate establishes a platform for students and groups to voice their concerns while also providing various student services, including general interest committees, and student-life events. Additionally, Student Government serves as the governing body of all student organizations on campus, organizing the registration of said groups and ruling on allocation requests. Our senators are committed to abiding by the By-laws and amendments set forth in our constitution and agree to respectfully represent the views and opinions of their constituents.
While the purpose of Student Government is to provide student services, the organization additionally puts on a number of student-life events on campus. In recent years, monthly trivia, Earth Day painting, and Professor’s Night Out have been our most popular activities. Additionally, MAC, Student Government’s sister organization, provides students with various educational and entertaining programs at no charge.
Meet your 2020-2021 Student Senate team!
