House of Delegates
The Liberty University Student Representative Branch exists to allow students the opportunity to make a real difference on our campus. The House of Delegates (HOD) serves as one of the two houses in the Representative Branch and is comprised of Delegates who represent the student body as a whole. The House meets every other week and is a place for students to share ideas, collaborate and grow together as they serve the student body. Delegates are strongly encouraged to join a Committee where ideas are debated and legislation is crafted. Apply to be a delegate and make a difference at Liberty University.

Speaker of the House
Hey! My name is Daniel Hostetter, and I am honored to serve as the Speaker of the House of Delegates. I am from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and I am majoring in Government: Politics & Policy. I serve as a Resident Shepherd on Commons 2 and attend Gospel Community Church in Rivermont. I also love Spikeball, music, breakfast, and a good cup of coffee.
This year, I hope to improve collaboration, objectivity, and efficiency in the House. As a delegate, you are given excellent opportunities to serve your community by writing and researching quality resolutions that improve campus life and student experience.
