The Legislative Branch of the SGA is the Student Senate. The Senate formulates SGA policy in accordance with the constitution and makes the laws of the SGA. In addition the Senate provides a forum for the discussion of university-wide issues ever Monday night at 8:00 PM in the Student Center Ballroom.

SGA Elections are held during Spring Semester every year. The SGA Senate is composed of students elected from every college and division on the basis of the percentage of students enrolled in each respectively. The Senate elects a President Pro-Tem from within its membership who supervises the senate committees and presides over the Senate in the absence of the Vice President. Senators are required to participate in at least one special committee, may also participate in a standing committee, and are required to complete a Senate Project.
