A message from the USS President, Caroline Lohr:

Hey Hokies! 

Welcome to the Undergraduate Student Senate (USS) website. USS is different from other student governments; we are the only unicameral student government in the country. Our structure is different,; yet our mission, goals, and values remain true to Virginia Tech and to our students. The USS is a growing organization and for the first time in 13 years we have a full senate!  We are dedicated to listening to student voices and creating a path for every student to champion their own voice and story. Our focus is on the student experience, and we pride ourselves on being here to partner with students, administration, along with faculty and staff. We also offer multiple resources to students who need them. Whether it be mental health, domestic violence, identity groups, addiction, etc., we can put you in contact with the right people to best serve you! One of our top values is approachability. Our website is easy to navigate and open to anyone! Follow our instagram (@ussatvt) to stay in the loop. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at Go Hokies!!
