The Student Government Association at GHSU
The SGA was formed in 1967 to unify and better serve the GHSU student body. This governmental body has initial authority to administer student activity fees within the general guidelines for the use of state funds. The association consists of elected representatives from each of the colleges and departments of the university. The SGA Constitution is printed in Appendix A of this handbook.
The SGA sponsors intramural athletic programs and funds, promotes social and entertainment events and provides feedback regarding student health, student housing, parking and other student services. Hence, the SGA is responsible for many of the benefits and privileges each GHSU student enjoys. Most importantly, the SGA serves as a primary link between students, administration and faculty. In fact, through the years much progress has been brought about through meaningful discussion with GHSU faculty and administrators.
Meetings are held almost monthly during the regular academic year and are open to all students. Meeting times are posted around campus and may be obtained by calling the Campus Life Services Office at (706) 721-3356.
