About Student Congress
Student Government has been a part of the University since 1922. It is the primary way for students to participate in the policy making that directly affects their educational stay at the University. Student Congress has provided many services to the student community including such things as the Grade Exclusion Policy, the Enrichment Hour, registration by credit hour, student access to course evaluations, and open parking after 5 p.m. They have enacted several policies dealing with not only educational issues, but also issues regarding student health and welfare, insurance, disabilities, and student fees. Student Congress produces the University Phone directory (The Maverick Connection), the University Apartment Guide, and the Maverick Discount Program, which boasts a membership of over 500 businesses offering discounts to students, faculty and staff.
