SGA & Student Ambassadors

The Student Government Association (SGA) acts as the liaison between the Administration, Faculty, Staff, and Students. SGA fulfills the mission set forth by the administration and is the model for student leadership, community service, and proactive student clubs and organizations.

Student ambassadors serve in a leadership capacity and also assist with a variety of activities as well as fundraising projects and with hosting special events.

Clubs and Organizations

Student clubs and organizations create opportunities for students to build connections with faculty, staff, and other students outside of the classroom. Through these clubs and organizations students are able to develop leadership skills and create relationships through community engagement and enhance their overall college experience.
