No two students create the same WCC experience ~ What will yours be?
The Student Government Association (SGA) is one of the most active organization at the College and provides leadership opportunities designed to promote students’ educational, personal, and social development, which allows for full integration for classroom learning. SGA provides an avenue by which students' interests and needs may be expressed, and provides students ample opportunity to work with College administration in matters affecting the welfare of the student body.
The responsibility for governing the student body is vested in the students themselves. To do this properly, the SGA requires a campus community effort and partnerships. The organization is comprised of:
All open meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at 12:30 p.m., promptly, in classroom G-209. In the event that there is a conflict with this location, the meeting will be held in the Student Lounge. These meetings are open to currently enrolled curriculum and WECA students, faculty, and staff, as well as invited guests. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
We offer a wide variety of experiences through entertainment and educational programming on campus and in our greater community area! To support educational, social, and personal development, our activities are ever-changing. Please review the calendar below for more information on scheduled events.
SGA is about more than providing entertainment and social activities. We are also change-makers. Our students work with local and state-level SGA organizations to promote awareness and changes on campus through College partnerships and legislation. To learn more about leadership development, talk with an Executive Council delegate member or advisor today!
One hour each week, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, is reserved for these activities (there are no classes scheduled at that time). To better reach more students, we will host specific events during evening and weekend hours. Students and staff are encouraged to become involved in activities as a measure to enrich experiences at Wilson Community College!
Great news- all enrolled curriculum students who pay the required student activity fees, and WECA students are members of the Student Government Association! You simply have to take action to become involved. Join us at our monthly meetings, and drop by the SGA office or advisor’s office during the school day to learn more. You may also e-mail or leave a voice mail using the contact information above and we will contact you promptly.
Curriculum Representatives represent their curriculum program and serve as liaisons between the SGA and all students. To become a Representative, please download the Curriculum Representative Form and follow the instructions. The Executive Council will review the information and follow up with each candidate individually. A full list of duties can be found in the SGA Constitution.
Executive Council delegates are responsible for the day-to-day functions of the SGA. This includes the planning, preparation, and execution of activities, programs, and community service as well as representing the student body in College affairs. Approximately 10 hours per week are required to fulfill the responsibilities of an Executive Council delegate. A full list of duties and election information can be found in the SGA Constitution.
**These are also the most highly sought qualities that transcend every career field!!
Whether we are conducting business, attending formals, or competing in competitions, we always make time for fun! Become active in SGA for hands-on, rewarding life experiences that can be applied to school, home, and career!
