Student Government Association

The SGA is composed of elected student representatives, academic senators, and campus organization presidents or their designees. The SGA attempts to enhance the educational experience of each student, and is based on the belief that a complete education extends beyond the academic program.
Also, the SGA maintains that this development can be attained through active involvement in student organizations, founded on the principles of cooperation, concern, leadership and service. It also provides a means of effective communication between the students, faculty and administration.
