One seat still remains for Eckstein Hall, Evans Scholars, O’Donnell Hall and Wells St. Hall.

“Senators identify the needs, issues and concerns of their constituents, that being the students of Marquette’s campus as a whole as well as in their residential area, they also attend Senate meetings each week,” MUSG Legislative Vice President Feider said.

Feider also said for the vacant seats, the process for applying is simple. There will be applications for positions on the MUSG website.
