SGA Staff



Portal Information


The Student Government Association serves the student body by working with administration to improve campus life.
SGA has three brances: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial. The Legislative branch (Senate) works to change unpopular campus policies and procedures. The Executive branch provides a variety of programs for clubs and organizations and works directly with WCU administration. The Judicial branch holds traffic court meetings. Go Cats!
