“It’s a great way to represent the students,” San Antonio junior senator Stephen Bell said. “It’s given me a great opportunity to represent my fellow classmen, as well as to work with administration to find common ground on issues pertaining to student needs.”
Student government also provides an opportunity for students to come together while serving the greater student body. All students are eligible to apply.
As stated in the Student Body Constitution, officer duties include acting as a spokesperson to students and helping plan projects.
“It’s given me a platform to voice my views and to voice my constituents’ views,” San Antonio junior senator Grant Senter said. “Student government gives you the chance to voice other students’ opinions to build a better Baylor and to build a better Waco.”
All student body, senate and class officer positions are open for applications. For more information on any of the positions, refer to the Student Body Constitution.
“I really encourage everyone to give it a try,” Bell said. “This is an exciting time for Baylor.”
