The Student Senate serves as advocates for all Anoka Technical College students. In addition to being the voice in front of local and state elected officials for fighting for lower tuition and more financial aid, the Student Senate represents the student body at meetings and in college committees.
They also subsidize the cost of professional conferences and competitions for students and provide social, educational, cultural and leadership activities for the entire college.
The Student Senate consists of a president, a vice president, a director of development, a public relations coordinator, a secretary, a treasurer, a director of internal affairs and representatives from each program area.
