Student Government: Elections coming soon

Student Government elections are just around the corner! If you’re looking for a way to get more involved on campus, consider running as a student senator. The Student Government represents the student body on a diverse range of issues including academics, student life, diversity, health and safety, the environment, and the Kirksville community. Students work regularly with faculty and administration and get an inside perspective on Truman events and policies. Some of our recent accomplishments have been the international flag display in the library, working with faculty to improve our new curriculum, and hosting Truman’s first TEDx conference. There are so many ways to get involved with Student Government, and everyone can find something they’re passionate about.

The Student Government is a group with many different majors who belong to organizations all across campus. There is no one type of senator — we’re united around our common goal of improving the university and serving the students in every way we can. If you’re interested in running for a position, we will be hosting informational meetings in the Student Government office on the first floor of the SUB on April 2nd at 8:00 p.m. and April 3rd at 4:30 p.m.

Election packets will be available from the Student Government office starting April 1, and active campaigning begins April 8. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our elections administrator, Hannah Wissler, at We’re so excited to meet you!
