What is our purpose?

As a diverse group of Student Senators, our purpose is to allow the general student opinion to be expressed. We assist students who live on & off campus by creating necessary bridges between our Under graduates and Academic Deans, faculty members, local landlords, etc.

We encourage the development of responsible student participation in the overall policy and decision making process of the university community. In order to enhance the quality and scope of education at the University, we foster an awareness of the students’ role in the academic community.


What do we do?

We recognize & support student organizations on campus and allocate Student Activities Tax to offer unique activities to our students, put together by our recognized organizations.
