LionRVNew Why SGA?

Research in high education has shown that students involved on campus outside of the classroom are more likely to succeed. (Astin, 1980, 1984)

A recent student showed that employers are hiring candidates with high competency in the soft skills: good attitude, interpersonal skills, communication skills, critical thinking/problem solving skills, teamwork. (Employers' Perspectives on Trade and Soft Skills, Richard Nagle, 2010)  Being involved with SGA helps you gain practical experience in all of these areas!

"I once learned that 'no one rises to low expectations,' and each of us needs to be led by an inspiring motivation.  For me, being a part of Student Government has been my motivation.
