Report:  SDSU Student Association.




SDSU SA Government Affairs Chair, Erika Van Nieuwenhuyse, will provide an update on SDSU happenings to the City Council and members of the public.


Erika is a Senior Political Science Major with minors in Legal Studies and Philosophy.  She plans to attend law school following graduation from SDSU in May 2023.  She has always enjoyed learning about government and has been involved in state government since her freshman year at SDSU by interning for both the SD House of Representatives, and most recently, Governor Noem.


The Students' Association is comprised of all General Activity Fee-paying students at South Dakota State University. The Students' Association Senate is the official student government organization at SDSU, consisting of 26 senators representing each of the academic colleges and the student body president and vice president.


The Students' Association Senate serves as a representative body to bring the voice of SDSU students to university administration, faculty, staff, state legislators and the South Dakota Board of Regents of Higher Education. The Students' Association also allocates student fee funds to support various campus entities, facilities and many student organizations.
