Hail to the Chief

Student senate elections are this month. Every student pays a small fee called student fees. This is mixed in with a fair amount of other cash which gets dumped into a massive pot. This pot is then divvied up and handed out to organizations and initiative by The Student Senate. I know probably half of the Senators from different organizations that I am in, and classes.
Drake holds certain spots on Senate for first year students. There is also a first-year interest committee of things the First Years wish to see that reports directly to Senate.
I would encourage all readers to get involved in college politics, especially if you were never the student council type in school. It allows one to meet a ton of people and have a real impact on the lives of your fellow students. Good Luck to all those running.
