What does the Student Government Union
The Student Government acts as the voice of the student body,
presenting suggestions and concerns to Administration. We sponsor
fun activities for the student body, as well as events like
leadership conferences and community service day.
How can I get involved in Student
The best way to get involved is Student Government is to begin
