Welcome to Ohio University’s Student Senate blog! The goal of this blog is to keep students up-to-date on Student Senate’s activities in an easy and fun format. We know the word “government” can sound off-putting. This blog exists to make “government” more about people. More about you and your needs. Plain and simple, this blog represents Student Senate. A body made of up individuals that care about each and every student on campus. Explore our blog and leave us some feedback!
What is Senate?
The Ohio University Student Senate is the unicameral student government of Ohio University. Senators represent all students and advocate the student opinion to administrators through legislation and as members of university communities. Throughout its history, the Ohio University Student Senate has strived to provide a forum to students so that their voices are heard. Student Senate provides student leaders the opportunity to interact both with each other and with administrators, faculty, community leaders and their constituents. Not only is the Student Senate an advocacy body for the students — a place for open communication and debate about the current issues on campus — but it is also a place to propose changes for the future of students at this university.
General Body Meetings
Student Senate meets every Wednesday evening in Walter 235 at 7:15pm. The meetings include a portion called “Student Speakout” where any student may come and voice their concerns to Senate. Feel free to come by and use that time to have your voice heard!
