The Student Government Council (SGC) is comprised of individual class presidents and vice presidents, Campus Activities Association (CAA) leaders, along with Commuter Student Council (CSC) leaders.
We work within the Office of Student Affairs and have monthly meetings to plan out and organize events for the semester.
All Student Affairs activities this semester will be held virtually, including SGC meetings. Our monthly meetings are mandatory for elected officers to attend.
Supporting members of SGC are also encouraged to join us if they would like to share their input and ideas for the semester during our meetings.
