Student Senate 

Comprised of representatives from every residence hall and the leaders of other Student Union Organizations, the Student Senate of Notre Dame discusses many important issues that pertain to the Student Body as a whole. Through the passage of resolutions and constitutional amendments, the Senate provides a voice to students through this group of leaders in important University matters.
