The Social Committee is a standing committee of the Student Senate and is supported by the Student Activity Fee. Its purpose is to plan and facilitate social activities such as movies, concerts, dances, coffeehouses, and novelty acts for the benefit of the campus. The organization sponsors several annual events, including Faux Rush week, Hendrix Formal, and SoCo 54, a 70’s themed dance party.
The committee meets every week and is comprised of one representative from each residence hall and the off-campus council, and one student representative elected at-large in the fall by the newly enrolled students. Other positions, appointed by the Student Senate, are Chairperson, Director of Films and Special Events, Director of Music and Dance, and Director of Publicity. The Secretary-Treasurer and Fundraising Coordinator are appointed by the chairperson. Anyone interested in the returning student positions may apply to Senate when filing opens during spring term.
