About Student Government
Purpose of the Student Government Association
The members of the Student Government Association are dedicated to: staying aware of the general welfare of the student body; serving as a channel of communication between the student body, faculty and administration; establishing and executing programs and projects beneficial to the student body, and promoting and improving relations between the local community and the student body.
