Elections for Student Government Association positions are held each spring, and the new leaders typically begin their terms starting just after spring break. The whole student body votes on presidential/vice presidential candidates, each class also elects two senators to represent their interests and representatives will also be elected during this time. Senators for the incoming freshman class are held early in the fall.
The Executive Committee, manage the day-to-day business of SGA and serve as points of contact for all students. They also work with University administrators and the Board of Trustees to represent student interests in broader matters.
In addition to these elected leaders, students to fill other SGA positions, such as editors of student publications, are hired by the Executive Committee. Applications for any open SGA positions are posted on Presence and are open to the whole student body.
