at The University of Kansas


Jayhawk Nation,

Happy summer! I hope that students and administration alike are utilizing the summer months to rejuvenate and prepare for the upcoming school year. Campus is abuzz with daily New Student Orientations and all sorts of campus renovation projects. I’m looking forward to everyone returning to campus in the fall to see the transformation that’s occurred over the past couple of months!

The Student Senate Executive Staff is in the office all summer working on our plans for the upcoming year. Daily, we have students coming into our office asking how they can get involved in Senate and other student organizations – very rewarding and reassuring to know that we have such a dedicated student body.

Please feel free to stop by the Senate offices with any comments, questions, or concerns! We’d love to hear from you.

Rock Chalk,

Morgan Said

Student Body President
