Greetings from the student senate
Jordan P. Gonzales
Speaker of the Senate


On behalf of the UNK Student Senate and Student Body, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our university. I hope your first weeks at this institution are going well, and I look forward to seeing you on campus!

This past Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2009, our Student Senate met to discuss two senate bills. The bills will add clarity to a Student Senate committee’s jurisdiction and also funded a free food tailgate for the opening game of the women’s soccer team.

Senate Bill 2009-11 was sponsored by Senator Matthew Wecker of the Pre-professional Category. The bill outlined the jurisdiction and duty of the newest permanent committee within the Senate, the Government Affairs Committee. The legislation outlined the powers of the committee and the proper protocol it will enact if the Senate is not in session. Senate Bill 2009-11 passed with a unanimous vote (15-0-0).

Senate Bill 2009-12 was sponsored by Senator William Hayward of the College of Business & Technology. This bill allocated $1,500.00 from the UNK Student Government Discretionary Fund to sponsor and host a tailgate food party to celebrate the inaugural game of the women’s soccer team and promote Loper pride. Discussion led to a unanimous vote in favor of the bill (15-0-0).

I would like to personally invite you to our second Student Senate meeting to help you see how the process works, and if it is something you would like to join. Our meeting will take place Tuesday, Sept. 15 and will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be located in the Cedar Room in the Nebraskan Student Union.

If you have further questions regarding Student Government, Student Senate or Freshman Elections, please feel free to call our advisor, Mr. Tim Danube, at 308-865-8441. You can also find us online through the UNK Web site.
Again, welcome! I am pleased that you have chosen the University of Nebraska-Kearney and I look forward to seeing you on campus and at a Student Senate meeting soon!
