Student Forum serves the interests of the student body by representing student opinion, promoting social, and cultural activities, acting as the vehicle by which students can participate in the decision-making processes which affect them by recommending, implementing, codifying, and evaluating policies, and by raising money for the college through at least one project per year.
Forum members are involved in open hearings for topics of concern for students as well as social activities such as Homecoming, Awards Ceremony, and the Pancake Breakfast.
Student Forum representatives are re-elected every year. All students with a minimum of seven credits are eligible for election. The members of Student Forum volunteer their time and energy to a number of different committees, activities, and events over the course of the year.
Student Forum's actions are overseen and advised by a number of the Silver Lake staff members, each from a different department of the College.
The Student Forum is organized by its constitution, which details information and guidelines on Forum objectives, holding elections, handling matters of absenteeism among Student Forum members, and the powers granted to the Student Forum.
