STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SGA)
WHO IS SGA?
SGA is made up of Gulf Coast students like you! Four students are elected by the
previous year's student body to serve as President, Vice President, Parliamentarian,
and Secretary. Students from other Gulf Coast clubs and organizations also serve
as representatives and at-large members represent the general student body.

Activities Funding, the SGA fosters activities for and with all clubs and organizations
and empowers students in all aspects of campus governance. They are the official voice
through which the opinions and concerns of the student body may be expressed. SGA
also serves as liaison between the student body and college administration to ensure
all procedures and practices within the organization are inclusive and non-discriminatory.

SGA provides collaboration between the classroom and student life by working with
faculty members on various events such as "Movies for a Cause", which pairs a movie
with a social or academic theme. SGA also sponsors guest speakers that cover topics
ranging from leadership skills and study tips to meditation.
SGA is not only filled with educational and professional knowledge opportunities;
it is packed with exciting and entertaining activities as well! Events for students
are a huge part of what SGA contributes to Student Life here at Gulf Coast State College.
From “Welcome Back Week” to “Movies on the Lawn,” there is no limit to what SGA will
provide in exhilarating events! SGA provides students with a Game Room that has a
newly refurbished pool table, gaming systems with an abundance of varying games, and
a lounging space for all students. There is so much more to SGA than you can imagine!
