Student government serves as a liaison between the student body, the faculty, and the college. Many of our representatives serve on faculty committees that are organized with Student Government’s support. We maintain open and direct communication with students, faculty, staff, and members of the Board of Trustees. We are also responsible for most of the student organizations on campus, assisting with budgeting, emergency allocations, programming, and more. In addition, Student Government oversees the nominations and elections for both the George Wharton Pepper Prize and the Superior Teaching Award. The bottom line: Student Government is working to help make Lafayette the best it can be.
For Spring 2014, Student Government meets at 7:00 PM every Thursday in 12 Farinon Center. All students are welcome to attend. The Budget Committee meets every Wednesday at 7:00 PM in 12 Farinon Center. Meeting times may change; check our website or bulletin board next to the office for any updates.
Student Government consists of fifteen representatives, with five representatives from each class. General elections are held in November, and a subsequent campus-wide election is held to elect a President and Vice President from among the representatives.
