SGA is the student voice on campus

The SGA is a vehicle for involvement in the college and acts as the official student representative body. The Student Government Association serves as the voice of the student body on issues concerning campus life and participates in shaping policies and student regulations.

This governing body was created to enhance the quality of student life and the success of students through participation in social, cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities.

Elections are conducted each spring for the executive officers. Offices include president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary and four senators. All students are encouraged to attend the monthly SGA meetings and participate in SGA events. The Student Government Association office is located in the Student Center.
