Senate

About

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. Senate Committees will be formed once the Senate convenes and a Senate President has been elected. You can track legislation here.

Senate President

Tavia Bruxellas

Hi! My name is Tavia Bruxellas and I am honored to serve as the Senate President this year. I am from the small town of Humboldt, Nebraska. I am a senior studying International Relations: Politics and Policy with a minor in Spanish. In my first year at Liberty, I served as a delegate in the House, and I loved every minute of it. In my second year, I served as both the Clerk of the House and later as a Senator representing the School of General Education. 

Outside of SGA, I am involved in the Alexander Hamilton Society, the LEAD Fellowship, and I enjoy leading a first grade Sunday school class at my local church. 

During my time at Liberty University, I have gotten to know my fellow students, faculty, and staff. I can honestly say that LU is unlike any other school. I am so honored to work with my fellow senators, the academic departments, and the rest of SGA to continue striving to make Liberty the best it can be for you, the student body.
