Student Senate

  • Student Senate is the student governing body of the campus participating in the administration of student affairs. Each SCC campus - Beatrice, Lincoln and Milford - has a Student Senate. The Senate acts in an advisory capacity and represents students in the planning and decision-making process. The president of Student Senate is a non-voting member of the SCC Board of Governors. Persons wanting more information on Student Senate are asked to contact the Student Activities Coordinator on their campus.

    Beatrice Campus

    A number of Beatrice Student Senate activities take place in conjunction with athletic contests, including:

    • Pink Night. This is held at both a home volleyball match and a home basketball game. Prizes are distributed to the crowd, and Senators usually dress in all pink attire.
    • Homecoming. This is held during the basketball season, usually in January or February. The King and Queen are crowned during halftime of a basketball game, and a dance follows.

    Other Beatrice Campus Student Senate activities include:

    • The Senate has a free lunch following each meeting.
    • The Senate plans all campus activities for the quarter.
    • The Senate takes a trip to Kansas City for a Royals baseball game and Worlds of Fun theme park.
    • Dash for Doughnuts. This is a 1.5-mile run through beautiful downtown Beatrice. There are four stops participants must make where they must eat a doughnut and continue to run. Prizes are given at the end of the race.

    Halloween Dance. A dance is held in conjunction with the October event. Prizes are given to students with the best costumes.
