What is Student Senate?

“They’re those people that sell lockers.”
-Common Misconception

The LSC Student Senate does a lot more than that, and they here to serve you by making sure the administration knows what problems need attention and change. Essentially, the student senate is the voice of the student body. We represent you here on campus to the administration, at the state level with State-wide and Regional meetings among campuses (through an organization called MSCSA) and at a Federal level when two student senators go to Washington, DC over spring break.

What are some of the things your student senate is doing on and off campus?


SenateFundraisingEvery fall and spring semester, the Student Senate hosts a fundraising event for the Student Essentials Fund (SEF). During Spring Semester 2014, the Student Senate hosted a fundraiser for the MSCSA Leadership Scholarship.

  • Find more information about the SEF program in our links menu (upper left corner on this page) or stop by the student senate office (E1008).
  • Want more information about MSCSA? Visit our MSCSA link (upper left corner on this page) or mscsa.org to find information about the scholarship opportunities.

Committee Involvement

The Student Senate participates in campus-wide committees, so the staff, faculty, and administration can also have the students’ point of view when meeting.

Comment Boxes

Do you have an idea or want to see a change at LSC? The Student Senate wants to hear from you! There are three comment boxes throughout the school.

They are located:

  • Outside the student senate office
  • Second floor of the E Building, Blue locker number 759 at the top of the stairs by the elevator, across from office 2106
  • A gray locker outside the cafeteria exit.

Student Success Day Participation

During Student Success Day (Spring 2014, Fall and Spring 2015), while handing out popcorn and soda, the Student Senate polled students to ask them questions about what they would like to see on campus, such as the possibility of sports, a meal plan, Wellness Center changes, and gardens on campus. Many projects are in the works!


The Student Senate rents lockers out to students for the fall, spring, and summer semesters. There’s no need to bring your own lock. The Student Senate provides a lock for you. Stop by the student senate office with cash or check and your student ID. Lockers are $10 each.
