Ohio University Student Senate

Ohio University Student Senate This is Official page of Ohio University Student Senate to advocate the student opinion to administrators through legislation. The Ohio University Student Senate is the unicameral student government of Ohio University.
(11)

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.
