Student Organizations & Activities

Student Government Association (SGA)

All Eastern students are automatically members of Eastern's Student Government Association (SGA), which was established in March 2006. The purpose of the Association is to represent student concerns and interests, campus-wide, by providing a unified voice. Eastern's SGA also organizes various student events and activities throughout the academic year.

If you wish to learn more about SGA, and how you can become more actively involved, talk to Lacey Koontz, Program Coordinator and SGA Advisor, or join us at a meeting in the Student Lounge. Campus TV screens announce SGA meeting dates and times.
