The AAS Senate is a 33-member elected body comprised of 8 Senators from each class at Amherst each serving one-year terms.  The Senate is charged with distributing the student activities fee to student organizations for campus-wide events.  In addition, Senators actively work to improve student life. Members of the Senate sit on many faculty and trustee committees and represent the student body's voice to the administration.  The Senate holds weekly meetings every Monday night at 8:30 in the Cole Assembly Room. Anyone is welcome to attend!

For questions, comments, or suggestions please feel more than welcome to email one of your class Senators, email, come to the weekly Senate meeting, or leave a suggestion here.
