STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SGA)
WHAT DOES SGA DO?
SGA offers you opportunities to engage in extra and co-curricular opportunities. This could be through community service activities such as volunteering at the Humane Society, Campus clean-up projects or helping with college-wide projects. SGA also promotes civic engagement through tools such as TurboVote, participation in National Model Congress and various blood drives. Leadership conferences are offered each year that are free and open to all students!
SGA provides collaboration between the classroom and student life by working with faculty members on various events such as Movies for a Cause, where students watch a movie paired with a lesson and Windtalkers for Native American History month. SGA sponsors guest speakers that cover topics ranging from leadership skills and study tips to meditation.
Meetings are held every Tuesday at 12:45 p.m. Locations will vary so please check the College Events Calendar for more information.
SGA is not all work, we do fun stuff too! We host free food events, drive-in movies, intramural sports, laser tag, Homecoming, Pie Day, Welcome Back Week, Grocery Bag Bingo, the student lounge and much more!
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.
