Since virtually all major decisions that are made on the Shasta College campus affect students in some way, student input is welcomed. The organized "student voice" to the campus community is facilitated through the Student Senate.
The purpose of the Shasta College Student Senate (SCSS) is to represent the students of Shasta College; to provide a vehicle for shared governance, student input, and participation in the affairs and activities of Shasta College as provided by the Educational Code of the State of California. The Student Senate functions for the good of the students to promote concerns and policies pertaining to the students of Shasta College and to encourage student development and leadership.
