We, the Student Government Association of Medaille College, are the official representative voice of the student body. We bridge the communication between students and the collective Medaille community by creating opportunities for student engagement and facilitating a positive college experience.
What We Do
The primary purpose of this organization shall be to serve as the official representative organization of the student body; to serve as the liaison between the student body and faculty, administration, and the Office of Student Development; to preserve and enhance the projects and activities which contribute to the quality of student life; to supervise student organizations and student activities on campus with the assistance of the Student Involvement Center; to protect the rights of the student as defined within the student handbook; and promote the general welfare of the student body. It is for the pursuit of these goals and for the promotion of the general welfare of the student body, that the students, with the consent and authorization of the President of Medaille College, establish this constitution.
Meetings are held every Monday when undergraduate day classes are in session, at 12:35 p.m. in the Student Development Office, in the Sullivan Center.
In Student Government committees make it easier for members to specialize in a specific set of tasks. There is something for everyone!
