Student Government Association
The East Georgia State College Student Government Association acts as the voice of the student body, and student issues and concerns should be brought to the attention of the SGA membership. SGA provides a means of expressing students’ needs and ideas, in order to encourage self-respect, self-esteem, and individual responsibility. SGA strives to have a closer understanding between the student body and the administration and faculty of East Georgia State College.
The Student Government Association is the campus organization governing student activities and representing the students in college affairs. SGA members are elected by the student body. The SGA is composed of three officers: president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer; plus three senators elected from the sophomore class; and three senators elected from the freshman class. During the Fall and Spring semester meetings are held weekly and are open forum. Student issues and concerns should be brought to the attention of the SGA membership.
