The Los Rios Community College District and its four colleges—American River, Cosumnes River, Folsom Lake and Sacramento City—will be hosting student elections on April 14-15, 2015, 7 a.m.-11:30 p.m. each day. Students are encouraged to learn more, run for a position, attend candidate forums and vote.
What is the role of the student association?
The student association is the official organization that represents students and consists of the Clubs and Events Board and Student Senate. Student leaders from each board are committed to advocating for students' rights, improving the campus culture and developing transferable leadership skills. Specifically, the Clubs and Events Board functions to promote student involvement and activities, while the Student Senate functions to advocate for the common interests of students.
The student trustee provides his/her perspective to ensure that students are served through service on the District's Board of Trustees. For more information, please see the Student Trustee Handbook.
How do I get involved?
Each college is always looking for students interested in leadership development. If you are open to learning and working with others, then consider joining the student association. Candidate petitions are due March 24, so click on the college or district logos below for further information.
Why should I vote?
Voting in the student elections is a privilege only for currently enrolled Los Rios students. Even though voting only takes a few minutes, elected student leaders make lasting changes to the campus environment and student experience.
