Each year in April SGA holds the election of its officers (President and Vice President) and senate members. Early in the Spring semester, an Election Board is selected. Their job is to create and enforce election and campaigning guidelines, facilitate information/orientation meetings, collect petitions, and serve as the contact point for all election and campaigning issues. This is also when SGA submits any Bills they are trying to pass. These are usually changes that SGA would like to make to their constitution.
Any full-time student may run for a position in the following year's association. Officers must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75, and senators must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50. Students may run as either a member of a party or unaffiliated. They will have the chance to campaign and may even participate in some wonderful debate.
