MUSG   Residential   Senators

Who are Residential Senators?

MUSG is made up of students. Every decision the student senate makes directly effects us, as well as the rest of the student body. It is important to us that MUSG senators work with and on behalf of students. Senators write real legislation to be passed on to administrators, meet with faculty and university officials to discuss concerns, plan forums and events focused on specific topics and gain student feedback through surveys and meeting with students.​

What is Student Senate?

Change Agents. Difference Makers. Helping Hands. These phrases exemplify what MUSG’s Senate is all about. MUSG represents the students, and senate is the means to act on what student’s desire. Ever since the founding of MUSG, senate has enacted meaningful change on Marquette’s campus. Whether it be through resolutions to directly help campus, or recommendations to administration, senate strives every day to deliver on issues that matter to the students.

The MUSG Senate actively identifies, addresses, and represents students’ needs, concerns, and interests. As a body, it is our sole job to represent the students and champion initiatives and ideas that will make the Marquette student experience.

2021 Candidate Platforms

Bennett Raasch

Running for Off-Campus Senator

I am looking to put forward my voice to make changes at Marquette, having worked for the University NSFP for 2 years as well as commuted I hope I can help suggests practical changes to campus life for those living on and away from it to help grow our community.


Grace Thompson

Running for Off-Campus Senator

I would like to hold this position because I want to be a voice for office campus students. I have been a senator for two years now & it is such a fulfilling position knowing I can help my peers in some way.


Adeel Raza

Running for Commuter Senator

As someone from Milwaukee, I chose Marquette for many reasons including proximity to my family. Commuting allows me to maintain this connection although many students choose to commute due to cost or situation. It is important that common issues commuters have, like timing of events and representation, are addressed and I will do so as a senator.


Sean Martin

Running for Straz Tower Senator

I hope to advocate for laundry fees to be included in tuition pricing. Studies show that having access to free laundromats on campus can lead to higher attendance rates (students do not want to be seen in public with dirty clothes). By including laundry in tuition, Marquette would be more inclusive to low income families that struggle financially.


William Reames

Running for Abbottsford Hall Senator

I would like to make sure the residents of Abbottsford have their needs and desires heard and respected; I want to ensure that those living in my hall have an ear and a voice.

Running for Commuter Senator

I am Guri Kaur, a junior majoring in mathematics and sociology. As a person, I value work ethic, accountability, and most importantly being personable. I am running for the position of commuter senator to represent my fellow commuters and advocate for their needs.
