Vacancies in Purdue Student Government for EXPL Students!

From Becca Wilmoth, former EXPL student and current PSG Student Body Vice President:

The Student Senate currently has 3 vacant Senate seats for the College of Exploratory Studies and I’m looking to fill these vacancies as soon as possible so that the voice of the Exploratory Studies students may be present and adequately represented in the coming year.  According to the PSG Constitution, I’m at liberty to appoint Senators if the vacant seats remain empty after 2 regularly scheduled Senate meetings. This is the situation that we’re facing now so I’m beginning the process of trying to fill these vacant positions.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity, please e-mail me, Becca Wilmoth at  Please include your resume and a description of what you hope to accomplish as a PSG Senator.  More information about the PSG Student Senate and our Senate Standing rules are available at and
