University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Student Senate
College of Liberal Studies Senator

James Bennett

James Bennett is a sophomore here at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He is currently majoring in political science with a pre-law minor and is a Portage, WI native.

UW-L caught James’ attention because of its wonderful, hometown feel and friendly community along with UW-L’s outstanding effort towards students’ academic success and personal relationship with faculty and staff.

James wanted to do his part in improving and making UW-L a better place for all future and present students, as well as producing a beneficial asset to the La Crosse community. Student Association offered an excellent opportunity to do just that so James became a senator his freshman year and returning this year to continue this effort. Some matters James would like to improve on this year with Student Association are intensifying and growing our connection with the student body as a whole, as well as making more substantial improvements to this campus and student life.

James can be contacted around campus and in the Student Association office on Wednesdays between 2:30 and 4:00 p.m., or by email at
