Associated Student Body

What does a Senator do?

The Student Senate is a body that meets weekly to plan, implement, and evaluate college activities and policies that directly impact students. Senators are voting members of the Senate. The opportunities available to a Senator are wide-ranging. Senators serve on campus committees as student representatives, coordinate events and serve the student body directly by scheduling office hours.

Senatorship is a multifaceted learning experience for all students and of specific relevance to those studying political science, business, and communication. If you would like to obtain or are seeking to enhance your leadership, communication and/or organizational skills, Senatorship is for you!

Who can be a Senator?

To become an ASB Senator you need to:

  • Collect 50 signatures of registered Gavilan students.
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 and a minimum of 5 units per semester.
  • Submit your name for nomination at a Senate meeting to be confirmed as a voting member.
