Student Government Association

The SGA is the guiding body for student life at Oglethorpe University.

 

The Student Government Association (SGA) at Oglethorpe University is an opportunity for the student voice to be heard and represented in the Oglethorpe community. SGA has three branches: the Executive Council, the Senate and the Programming Board. Each branch has representation from each class and these representatives are selected during the annual SGA elections.

SGA meets weekly to discuss campus issues, bring awareness to student concerns and works to administer the Student Activities Fee. All SGA meetings are open to the whole student body and SGA encourages all students to be involved and participate in student government. All meeting minutes are available on the SGA blog.
