Student Government

Want to Get Involved?

Getting involved in Student Government Association is as easy as showing up for a meeting. Any student can come to a meeting and voice their opinion and bring issues to the floor. If you want to actually serve on the Student Government Association, start by joining a student organization or talking to someone in your academic program. We have senators for each academic school and student organization.
