The Structure of Your Student Government
The heart of Beloit Student Congress (BSC) is the General Assembly Meeting which takes place every Monday at 8:30PM in Mathers A/B. This meeting is open to all students.
While BSC often looks like a complicated organization, all powers are fundamentally vested in the General Assembly. The committees serve to expedite processes and to prevent the general meetings from dragging on forever. However, the General Assembly can perform almost any action that a committee can and can overturn nearly any committee decision (within some limits).
The BSC General Assembly does not have the time to address every issue that comes up in the normal functioning of student government. Therefore, they have delegated significant responsibilities to committees, whose members selflessly dedicate part of their lives to ensure the smooth functioning of the greater BSC structure.
BSC is kept on a smooth course by your brave and valiant elected leaders. If you are an individual of wit, cunning, and moral fortitude, you just might be qualified to join their Olympian ranks. Elections are held every semester, and details can be found in the Elections section.
Constitution & Bylaws
BSC, like America, has governing documents as well as myriad regulations setting forth in intricate detail what may and may not be done. As with the real government, these rules can be difficult and on occasion seem arbitrary. However, they must still be followed. To determine if you are on the right side of the law, go to the Constitution and Bylaws page, where all the rules for the BSC funds can be found.
