Joining Student Government

Are you interested in advancing dining options on campus? Do you enjoy event planning? Or, are you passionate about issues such as mental health accessibility or diversity and inclusion? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should become a part of the conversation and run for Student Government!

To get started, download the elections packet (Fall 2022 Freshman Elections). In this packet, you will find all essential dates and deadlines for the upcoming election cycle as well as campaign rules and regulations.

All first-year students are encouraged to run for a Senator position. There are no requirements to run for Student Government other than being dedicated to the betterment of our community. We are committed to representing the interests of all students and need representation from all grades, fields of study, and identities.

Note on Appointment Process: Students interested in getting involved in Student Government who do not wish to run for a position or are unsuccessful in getting elected via the elections process are encouraged to apply for appointment. The Senatorial Appointment committee is chaired by the SG Chief of Staff Braden Strackman (strabw19@nullwfu.edu) and consists of representatives from the Judiciary and Diversity and Inclusion Committees. 

Students interested in finance, funding, and budgets have the opportunity to become more involved in that part of Student Government by joining the Student Budget Advisory Committee (SBAC). To learn more, please email the S.G. Executive Treasurer Tim Erday erdate20@nullwfu.edu

For students not wishing to formally join Student Government, other opportunities include: attending Senate meetings from 7-9pm in Benson 401, reaching out to S.G. Co-Chairs or Senators on issues pertinent to the student body, or creating partnerships between S.G. and other Student Organizations. 

Please feel free to contact us at wakesg@nullwfu.edu or our Student Body President Pilar Agudelo at agudm19@nullwfu.edu if you have any questions about running for a position or getting involved with Student Government.
