Student Government Association
The Student Government Association is a self-governing organization. The main function of the legislative body is to allocate funds for recognized clubs, student groups, campus projects, and University activities. The Student Government Association includes seven senators and two class officers from each class. In addition, there are liaisons and an executive committee. The Senate acts as a liaison between the student body, the faculty, the administration, and interest groups. Senators are elected by their peers and once elected, senators work with the executive committee, liaisons and class officers to help formulate policies and recognize new organizations on campus.
"SGA offers numerous opportunities for students to practice their leadership, communication and problem solving skills, all while learning more about the university and serving their fellow students. SGA allows for members to work with faculty, staff and students they most likely wouldn't have otherwise."
