Organization Description
All full-time students are members of the Student Government Association (SGA) and are thus eligible to vote in annual elections of officers to the student senate, the association’s legislative body. All major components of the student body are represented in the student senate. The SGA, which holds regular weekly meetings, is charged with promoting the standards of the College, unifying the student body, and representing the students to the faculty, administration and community. In cooperation with the Student Activities Office, the SGA allocates student activity fees to support such student-initiated programs as campus media, student publications, guest lecturers, dances, concerts, coffeehouses, fine arts performances, film series, and more than 80 clubs and organizations reflecting varied student interests. Student representatives are also selected to sit on the College’s Board of Trustees and on such College committees as Academic Policy, Academic Resources, Admissions and Scholarship, Curriculum, Faculty Issues and Planning. The SGA president and vice president are invited to attend Board of Trustees and Alumni Council meetings as representatives of the student body.
