Senators are a part of the legislative branch of USG. The senate addresses issues pertaining to any aspect of the university and beyond. All senators serve on committees, which produce legislation relevant to the business of the committee. Legislation is discussed at biweekly senate meetings, which alternate with biweekly committee meetings.
All undergraduate students are invited and welcome to discuss any aspect of their undergraduate experience with the senators in their school or college.
Legislation (bills and resolutions) passed by the Undergraduate Student Government Senate is representative of the voice of undergraduate students.
Senators can help you with almost everything you can imagine when it comes to your overall experience at ASU. Funding for trips, events or programs you want to see initiated, student organizations you want to get involved with or launch — information about all these topics can be gleaned from your senators.

I have been in Arizona for almost four years and I graduated from Shadow Mountain High School in 2022. I played soccer, wrestling, crosscountry, and volleyball for my high school. Transitioning to my experiences, I have experienced a wide variety of different cultures and it’s never enough for me to learn more about different cultures and so please, you're welcome to share with me. Also my native language is Dari-Hazaragi and I am pretty fluent in Pashto, Bahasa-Indonesian, and Spanish. I am here to learn from you and work with you so please, don’t be afraid to share your thoughts and issues with the campus or and any other comments and concerns that you may have. My favorite quote from Rumi is “Raise your words not your voice, it is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” (Rumi).
