The body is made up of up to x6 representatives from each class (first year, sophomore, junior, senior), At-Large Senators, the Executive Council comprised of the President and x4 Vice Presidents, and the Advisor. The General Assembly governs in accordance with the organization’s Constitution and Bylaws, and guides its practices with the Financial Handbook and Rules of Practice, as put forth by the Executive Council. All of these documents are located in the ‘Documents’ section below.
General Assembly Meetings occur weekly throughout the semester on Thursdays at 4:30pm in the Hoblit Suite. General Assembly meetings are open to the student body. Any student can bring things up for discussion in the ‘Open Business’ part of our meetings.
