Centennial Perspectives

Student Life: Student Government

Divided into three parts, the Student Senate consisted of an executive committee, an elections committee, and a student court. The executive committee handled the serious problems confronting the student body. The student court dealt summarily with violators of many of the established rules on campus such as illegal parking of student cars and smoking in restricted zones. The court reviewed each case and then dealt with it. The elections committee had control of the various elections on campus. The rules were set by them concerning the proper voting and tabulating procedures.

Students were appointed from the senate to act as chairmen of the nine functional committees. Fees, athletics, artist series, student publications, student employment, social affairs, and the student union were the various committees so advised.--Key, 1950
