Have you ever heard of the group on campus that calls itself the Student Government Association or otherwise known as SGA? If not, then I’d like to tell you a little bit about what the organization does and what it stands for. The purpose of the SGA is to determine and implement student policies and act as a liaison between students and university committees. The SGA not only acts as a liaison between the university and it’s students, but it also gets involved academically by awarding financial aid funds to try and meet every qualified student’s needs. The organization is a very well rounded program and also gets involved with physical health care and diagnostic referral services to ensure that students function at their full potential. Basically, the organization tries to do whatever it thinks is in the best interest of the students at large. Anyone can run, but there are certain criteria s that have to be met. You have to have forty-five credit hours and a pretty descent grade point average. You must be nominated and the Dean of Students has to look into the applicant’s records to see if he or she is qualified for the position. If the applicant is granted the Dean’s approval, then a debate is held and a vote is conducted on which applicants should be accepted. The Student Government Association is stemmed into several branches. One being the Executive branch, two being the Legislative branch, and three being the judicial branch.
The Legislative Branch of SGA is the largest student governing body on campus. It consists of 67 elected representatives, which includes the Chair of Legislature. The students represent colleges, residence halls, and class presidents all over campus. The Legislative Branch acts as a connection between the students and the administration. The duties of Legislature are to make changes in the constitution, budget clubs and organizations, and charter primary and secondary clubs and organizations.
