Student Council
The Student Council is responsible for disbursing the Council funds and club funds derived from the student activity fee, as well as the additional funds allocated to Media/Yearbook from the budget of the Student Life Corporation. Composed of 24 members, the Student Council has an Executive Board that includes a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer, and four repre­sentatives each from the graduate, senior, junior, sophomore and freshman classes. The Student Council follows the Charter of the Student Government bylaws in fulfilling its responsibilities.

Student Elections
