Student Clubs

The Student Government Association (SGA) functions as the governing organization of the student body. It serves as a means of participation in College governance with the faculty, staff, and administration, and acts for the students.

In addition to serving as liaison between the College administration and the student body, SGA allocates student activity funds, coordinates campus social activities, and approves new campus student organizations.  The student activity program is developed according to student interest and available resources.

The Student Government Association meets weekly in the Diversity Center, College Center Building Room 150, and all students are welcome to attend.

Below is a list of current Student Clubs/Organizations. Contact the advisor listed for more information regarding meeting times, etc.
