Student Council & the Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC)
Student Council and SSFC seats are elected through popular vote by the student body. Freshmen seats on Student Council are elected during the fall semester and all other Student Council and SSFC seats are elected during the spring semester. Read more about the Student Elections.
