Student Government Association
There are a variety of student organizations that reflect the diverse interests of the campus. There are many opportunities for all students interested in expanding their social, professional and academic development.
Currently, there are approximately 30 student organizations operating on campus. These student organizations are classified under six categories: Academic, Business, Special Interest, Religions, Honorary and Greek letter organizations. The Office of Student Life and Development in conjunction with the Student Government Associations Inter-Organization Committee monitors the recognized student organizations activities.
The Student Government Association (SGA) represents the student body by serving as the liaison between the students and the administration. The SGA, faculty and staff share the responsibility of making decisions that affect campus life. The SGA has an Executive and Legislative board.
The SGA seeks to maintain a spirit of cooperation in the activities of the University and encourages student initiative through service. The SGA also oversees many student activities and serves as an advisory body in many areas of the University.
The SGA office is located on the 1st floor of the University Student Center inside the Student Life and Development Suite. Responsibilities of the SGA and information concerning student participation in the various phases of self-governance are detailed in the Student Handbook.
SGA is overseen by the Office of Student Life and Development. Students are encouraged to seek membership and actively participate in student organizations at Central State. These student organizations enhance the campus community and provide students with the opportunity to develop responsibility and leadership outside the classroom.
Complete information concerning these student organizations is available in the Student Handbook.
