The Hereford Student Senate (HSS) is a body of student representatives that serves the Hereford Community. Consisting of two consuls, an executive board, and senators from each building, the Senate oversees the disbursement of the $20,000 budget consisting of student activities funds for enrichment programs, community-building activities, and improvements at the college. The Senate is the primary voice of Hereford students within the residential college as well as the larger University, helping to shape the direction of Hereford. The Senate also serves as a liaison between Hereford and the other residential colleges at U.Va. to plan joint activities.
The Senate meets every Monday at 9pm in the Hereford Hub. Meetings are open to the Hereford community and all Herefordians are encouraged to attend. If you have an idea or know of a need around Hereford, please attend a meeting! Elections to HSS occur at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semester and at the conclusion of the academic year.
If you have an idea and would like to bring it to the Hereford Student Senate, please feel free to get in touch with the appropriate committee chair. Descriptions of each committee can be found in the lefthand menu. If you are not sure which committee chair to approach, just contact the HSS consuls, Monica Kuo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Evan Sheldahl (email@example.com).
