Students' Association

Welcome to the SDSU Students' Association!

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, and 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.


The Students' Association Senate meets weekly during the academic year on Mondays at 7:00pm in the Lewis & Clark Room of the University Student Union. Meetings are open to the public. Students or other members of the public are welcome to speak or share concerns during the public comments portion of the open forum.

The meeting agenda for each week can be found in the Rabbit Report, linked here.

“I want to give a voice to those who are oppressed.”

For Allyson Monson being able to voice her opinion was not always a dream.

The American Legion Auxiliary South Dakota Girls State program helped her get on the right path the summer before her senior year of high school.
