The Student Government Association (SGA) is made up of officers that are elected by students. These officers serve as your liaison to the administration of the college. SGA is responsible for many aspects of student life at Western, including everything from presenting student-related issues to the administration to providing fun events for students.
Western students can attend one of SGA's meetings from 12:20 PM – 1 PM on Wednesdays in the 3rd Floor Board Room (room 3060). In every meeting there is a time for public comment and anyone is welcome to come and speak about any concerns during this time. Students are encouraged to attend!
If you are unable to come to a meeting, you may also submit questions, comments, and concerns the Student Life department at firstname.lastname@example.org
SGA is made up of four officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Senate Speaker, and Campus Activities Board Coordinator. SGA also has seven Senators and seven Campus Activity Board (CAB) members. SGA President will receive a $750 scholarship. Executive board members will receive a $650 scholarship. Senators and CAB members receive a $450 scholarship. You do not need to apply for the scholarship separately. Once you get elected and complete the semester successfully in SGA, the advisor's will add the scholarship to your account.
SGA is looking for members to support the student body! Members receive a scholarship that can help you pay for your education, while gaining leadership skills that help in school and life. If you think you have what it takes to be a student leader, SGA wants you on its team!
Elections are held in the first few weeks of every semester. To run for office, acquire a petition that can be found in the Dean of Students Office (2006).
