First Year Senator Program


Applications for SGA First Year are now open! 

Information on First Year Senators

First Year Senators are a vital part of the Student Government Association. A First Year Senator is any student who is beginning their first year at VSU or current students with less than 30 credit hours. First Year Senators will be given hands-on experience in leading and advocating on behalf of their class and the student body. The main difference between First Year Senators and upperclassmen is the increased time and service commitment for their first semester in the Senate. The extra time commitment will include the orientation and training process.   

Qualities of a First Year Senator 

  • Leaders with some previous experience 
  • Advocates with commitment to others 
  • Civically engaged citizens 
  • Individuals with integrity 
Applications are due next Friday, Sept. 2nd at 3 P.M
Feel free to reach out to Vice-President Makaya Clinton via email at msclinton@valdosta.edu if you have more questions
