The Student Government Association
(SGA) is the official body that represents all
of the students of the College. All regularly
enrolled college students are automatically
members of the SGA upon payment of
tuition and fees. The membership has the
authority to elect officers and senators. The
SGA president serves on the Chancellorís
Council and is the voice of the students in
the governance of the college. The SGA
sponsors social, cultural, and educational
events on campus and funds these activities
through the self-assessed student activity
fee which is paid each semester by all
Through student petitions and
referendums, the SGA has the authority
to approve expenditures from the SGA
self-assessed fees. Such requests also
require the approval of the SGA Advisor and VCSA.
The SGA recommends expenditures
from the technology fee paid by all students.
The technology fee was reauthorized
by the Spring 2008 student body. The
technology fee funds computer equipment,
computer technicians, essential supplies
and equipment for academic programs,
and student services that increase the level
of technology available to students and
improve student life and learning.
There are many College Committees
that include students as members and the
SGA and/or VCSA appoints such students
to these committees.
Meetings and other activities are posted
on bulletin boards in campus buildings.
Meetings of the SGA are open to all
students and students are encouraged to
get involved by attending meetings, seeking
appointments as senators, and running for
office in the spring election.
