The Student Government Association (SGA) is the “voice of the students.” Through SGA projects, real change and improvement can occur on campus. This doesn’t happen without your involvement! The Senate fulfills the legislative functions of SGA, and includes the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, eight Senior Senators, eight Freshman Senators and the Student Trustee. Each week the Senate meets to review and vote on major resolutions concerning the students’ general welfare. Senate meetings are open to everyone. Check in the SGA office for the date and time of the next meeting. For answers to some SGA frequently asked questions, please click here.

SGA committees include: Awards Committee, Budget and Finance Committee, Election Board, Athletic Board, Student Organization Board, Constitution and Judicial Committee and Abilities Awareness Committee. SGA is responsible for disbursing the Student Activity Fee money. These funds are used for club programs, Student Activities Board events, athletics and campus improvement projects and programs initiated by SGA, such as your YMCA membership.
