Student Government Association
SGA is the student voice creating loyalty, unity and respect. We are students coming together as a community of professionals.
RCN SGA helps to:
- Bridge the GAP between Students and Faculty
- Unite students
- Create fun outside the classroom
- Work to update policies
The purpose of the Student Government Association is to provide an organization which is representative in nature and through which business that pertains to the undergraduate student body and to individual classes can be conducted. SGA initiates recommendations which are the result of student body thinking and submits them to college administration for consideration and approval. Finally, it stimulates interest and promotes cooperation and communication between the faculty and student body.
SGA consists of members elected by each class. Representatives are elected every spring. Freshman and AO representatives are elected by the end of the fall semester. Each representative is required to be in good standing with a grade point average of at least 2.25 (A=4.0). Officers are elected annually in the spring and they must be junior or senior students in good standing.
Past events have included picnics, holiday parties, ice skating parties and the annual semi-formal dance. Elected members are also encouraged to attend leadership development workshops and conferences annually.
It is from SGA that students are selected for faculty committees. All students, including freshmen, are encouraged to participate in SGA as committee members and through activities. Involvement in student government provides unique opportunities for developing leadership and team building skills which add valuable dimensions to your education.
