  • The senate has 22 positions, with every college guaranteed one senator. The remaining 14 seats are distributed among the colleges based on enrollment every two years.
  • This election’s breakdown of seats is:
    • College of Ag, Bio Tech, Natural Resources – 2
    • College of Business Admin – 3

    • College of Liberal Arts – 8
    • College of Science – 2

  1. Super Informative ! Well written and to the point. I enjoy the basic layout as it was a great flow . I got all I need from this . The title provide a perfect grasp of the post would entail yet left me curious to click and get the information.
    It is important especially with this blog to lay everything out in an easy understandable format so that in further posts I ( the reader) can know what is exactly what . For those of us not familiar with politics and ASUN we really need this ! Great to be in the loop.
    Job well done !!
