Lebanon Valley College’s Student Government is tasked with fostering understanding, communication, and cooperation among students, faculty, and administrators.
Student Government is comprised of 36 full-time students. Among them are the following local students:
Jessica Zeiner of Leesport, a graduate of Schuylkill Valley High School, is serving as vice-president for the class of 2018 and is pursuing a bachelor of science in exercise science.
Jared Kramer of Sinking Spring, a graduate of Wilson High School, is serving as president for the class of 2021 and is pursuing a bachelor of science in music education.
Twenty-seven upper-class students are elected from the student body each spring for a one-year term beginning in September. This includes four class officers, four class representatives and a commuter representative from each returning class. In addition, nine first-year students are elected in September. Student Government officers are elected each spring from among the 27 upper-class students.
One of Student Government’s major responsibilities is to foster understanding, communication, and cooperation among students, faculty, and administrators. It serves as the channel for all student recommendations for establishing or changing policy and communicates these recommendations to the appropriate administrative offices or faculty committees.
Student Government also approves the constitutions of all campus organizations, regulates the elections of student government members and class officers, and appoints student government members and other students to campus committees. They also plan activities and major campus-wide events including Homecoming and Winter Formal.
