The SGA is composed of the Senate Board, the Judiciary Board, and the Student Activities Board. Being a part of SGA is a wonderful opportunity in which you can make new friends, become a student leader at this college, and have fun! It will also entail hard work, but whose results will be rewarding in the end!
The Senate is where legislation is drafted, debated, and voted upon. It is composed of four committees: the Academic Affairs Committee, the Diversity Committee, the Public Relations Committee, and the College Affairs Committee.
The Judiciary Board is the student voice in issues that come up regarding Student Conduct and Public Safety. They also engage in values-based programming.
The Student Activities Board (SAB) plans and leads programs and events for students at the college.
Please keep in mind that you will not hold any official Student Government Association title. If you would like to be a Senator, Justice, or SAB Member you can fill out this application: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSekmWYct4WNFOiVcg_jZk9LqvRq9gAkCTSME8eUfLHxvIy3NQ/viewform
