Student Senate is led by six executive officers who make everything possible: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, NDSA Delegate, and Public Relations. The executive officers below are for the 2016-2017 year.
Jordan Bushaw, President
I’m a Senior in Software Engineering with a concentration in Application Enterprises. I’m born and raised in Bismarck, North Dakota. During my, very limited, free time I love to read, hike and camp – I’m also obsessed with Harry Potter and dogs. Both are addictions. I joined Senate because a friend of mine told me about it during my freshman year. This is my 2 ½ year on Senate and I love being a member because I’ve seen what a difference we can make and how we can impact the other students on campus, often without them even realizing it.

In my free time I like to watch Netflix and just relax because I don’t get that often. I am involved in Student Senate because I want to help make a difference at VCSU. I have been a member of Student Senate for 1.5 years not including this one.

I am excited to be the treasurer this year!
Morgan Nalley, Public Relations
