SGA has two advisors as well as two faculty senators. The advisors oversee the day to day functioning of SGA. They help solve internal conflicts, answer procedural questions, and help foster communication lines between the students and various offices across campus. They are a great resource for our students, and have helped our students become not only better leaders, but better people.
