What is the Student Government Association?
The Student Government Association (SGA) serves as the voice for all students and is the liaison between students and the faculty, staff and University administration. The SGA is composed of the executive board, senate and Student Tribunal (judicial board). Additionally, students are recommended by the SGA Executive Board to serve on numerous standing University committees.
How do you get involved?
SGA Senate currently designates five freshmen and two graduate seats to be elected each fall semester. Applications will be available the first day of class at www.apsu.edu/sga. Senators have the opportunity to research ways to improve APSU and can propose resolutions to the Senate. In the spring semester, SGA elections are held for both executive board seats and the rest of the senate positions. Additionally, Student Tribunal selections are held during the spring semester.
When are meetings?
Meetings are held weekly at 4 p.m., Wednesday, in the Morgan University Center, Room 307. The first 10 minutes of every senate meeting are open to any/all students who have concerns or want to ask SGA to act on something.
Want to make a difference?
SGA is the organization JUST for you. There are a variety of programs and events held annually by SGA. Some of these include:
- MudBowl — A campus tradition. It’s a fun time to get down and dirty playing volleyball with your fellow students in the mud! Make plans to take part in Mudbowl this year!.
- Homecoming — In cooperation with the Office of Student Life and Engagement, SGA is one of the co-sponsors of events held throughout the week. You’ll find that regardless of your interests or talents, there is something for everyone during Homecoming.
- G.H.O.S.T. — Once a year Austin Peay becomes a G.H.O.S.T. town. G.H.O.S.T., “Greater Halloween Options for Safe Trick or Treating,” is a longtime tradition at APSU, sponsored by the SGA. Originally intended for the children of APSU students, faculty and staff, G.H.O.S.T. also draws children from the local community and provides a welcome environment for children to trick-or-treat on the APSU campus.
- The Big Event — SGA hosted the first Big Event at APSU in the Spring of 2015. The Big Event is a city-wide service project centered around APSU students giving back to the Clarksville community.
