Check Out What We’re Working On!
Student Government is always working behind the scenes to make campus a better place. Here are our current initiatives.
This year we created a new look and vision for student government that is oriented around student voice, representation, and advocacy.
Changing the Culture
We have been working on creating an atmosphere for Student Representation. We have also worked on having community building Welcome Week activities such as Adventure in the Vern.
Focus for the semester
As part of our focus, we have hosted Q & A sessions with the University President and VP of Student Life, as well as focused less on events and more on student needs in order to create a sense of belonging in our community.
