College Nine Student Senate

College Nine Senate holds weekly meetings from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM in Social Sciences 2, Room 265.

The College Nine Senate is a university-recognized student government that is comprised of College Nine students. College Nine Senators represent the students of College Nine on issues that affect the College Nine community and act as liaison between university officials and the students.

Senate develops and upholds the international theme of College Nine while raising awareness on important international issues with our fellow students.

Senators meet weekly to discuss issues and ideas affecting the experiences for College Nine students. Senate sends representation to campus-wide and UC organizations, while also allocating funds to many College Nine organizations and programs.

Meetings are held every Thursday at 7:30PM in Social Sciences 2, Room 265.
