About the Senate
The Representative branch of Student Government affords students the opportunity to make a real difference on our campus. The Senate serves as one of the two Houses in the Representative branch and is comprised of two representatives from each School, who are appointed by their respective Deans. The Senate meets every other week and is a place for students to share ideas, collaborate and work together towards the betterment of the schools of study which comprise our university.
President of the Senate
Hey, y’all! My name is Abbye Morgan, and I am honored to be serving as Senate President this year. I am a junior majoring in Chemistry here at LU, which is a little out of the ordinary for most people who are in student government. When I’m not at the SGA office, I can usually be found in the science building studying, researching, or working in a chemistry lab. Before I was elected Senate President, I served as a Delegate in the Spring of 2022 and then as a Senator during the 2022-2023 academic year. I am passionate about connecting students to upper administration through student government and more than excited to serve as Senate President. Please reach out to me through email or swing by my cubicle if you have any questions!
