  • We hold our Senate meetings every Wednesday at 4 pm in the State Room, and any student is welcome to come and voice his or her opinion on business.
  • If a student cannot make this time, the executives have office hours which will be posted on the outside of the SGA office located on the ground floor of the Student Center.
  • Students are encouraged to get involved and participate in the student government because it shows the administration that we have a voice, we are concerned, and we want a say.
