Senate thanks Homecoming participants

October 17, 2013

Student Senate would like to thank all of those who participated in homecoming.

We would like to thank those who used the thunder sticks to cheer on our team and for those who came to our bonfire for free s’mores. We appreciate the showing of school pride and hope to make next year even more enjoyable for the students.

Keeping on the note of celebration, we would also like to welcome those who are now our new senators. Through hard work and determination they ran great campaigns and truly deserve the seats that they won. Thank you to: Shelby Hehr, Jennifer Andersen, Joseph Schmidt, Kara Stein and Spencer Bemis.

We would also like to thank our elections commissioner for the work he did on setting up the second set of elections. All of us look forward to working with them in the coming months and getting down to the business that needs to be done in Senate.
On the subject of business, we are in dire need of people to fill different committees at the University. These committees are not burdens, but rather, opportunities to further your career and education.

Currently, we have a committee that can fit any need and almost any sort of major. These committees are an excellent way to boost your resume and academic record.
One of the main issues that we hear students talking is about the time commitment. We have committees that meet from once a semester to once a week.

If you are interested in applying for these positions please contact Shared Governance Director Dominic Riel at or visit our Orgsync page and apply. We hope to see many new faces on these committees and look forward to working with all of you.

As a closing note Senate would like to welcome you to our meetings at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays in the Willow River Room on the third floor of the University Center. For those of you who are free at this time, it is an excellent way to get involved and to learn what is going on around campus. We hope to see you at our next meeting on Oct. 22.
