  • Meet basic standards pertaining to academic history and current enrollment
  • Make the commitment to attend meetings of the General Assembly, attend meetings of at least one standing committee, attend a 1-credit course in parliamentary procedures and dedicate time outside of meetings and class to ensuring that student life at Housatonic is seen, heard and successful.
