Student Government Association
The Student Government Association (SGA), with offices on the first floor of the Campus Center, offers a variety of services designed to accommodate students. The Student Government Association provides a means for expressing student views; sponsors programs to improve the cultural, social, and physical welfare of students; and provides a form of government for the supervision of student activities. All registered undergraduate students of the College are members of the Student Government Association and pay a mandated student activities fee, which is part of the comprehensive fee. The fee is used to support the diversified program of student activities sponsored by the Student Government Association. More than 60 clubs and organizations receive funding from the SGA.
Officers who are elected annually in the spring by students carry out the executive and administrative functions of the SGA. The director of Campus Life is the official College advisor to the Student Government Association.
Through the structure of the Student Government Association, the students at Fisher have a high degree of autonomy in conducting student affairs. Participation in the activities of the Student Government Association offers valuable educational and social opportunities, and students are encouraged to participate. For additional information contact SGA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Fisher student is a member of the class with which he or she enters. Class officers provide opportunities for unity building and support networks. The students in a particular class are the people with whom common bonds are held, which continue beyond the Fisher experience and stay with alumni of the College. Class officers, elected by their respective classes, provide leadership for attaining a common goal. Class members have a responsibility for contributing to this goal.
