Freshmen Elections

Freshman Jayhawks,

Welcome to KU! You are beginning to embark on an incredible journey that will take you from orientation to commencement's walk through the Campanile.  The memories you make on this hill will last a lifetime, and the best way to create memories is to get involved! There are so many ways to be involved at KU, and we here at Student Senate want you to join us in our chambers this fall. Student Senate is the student voice that leads to tangible, meaningful change on our campus. 

Freshman elections occur each academic year in the fall, electing 5 senators to represent incoming students.  Regardless of whether or not you run during the fall, you can always get involved in Student Senate! Click on the Committees tab to learn how you can get involved with one of our four standing committees, where every KU student has voting rights! 

Rock Chalk!
 

Thank you to all that participated in the 2019 Freshman Elections!
