Student Government Association

All students are members of the Student Government Association

(SGA). The governing body of the SGA includes an executive board; representatives from the senior, junior, sophomore, and freshmen classes; and a senate made up of students from each of the schools as well as the resident, athletic, and commuter populations. Elections for the SGA Executive Board, class officers, and senators take place in the spring. The SGA

believes that student participation in the conception and implementation of campus activities and policies promotes not only the intellectual development and maturation of the individual student but also cohesiveness within the campus community. Student government offers students opportunities for the practical application of professional and interpersonal skills and for the development of administrative abilities. By supporting University traditions and serving as the voice of the student body, the SGA enriches campus life and helps broaden the university experience of every student.
