News and Events Details
Legislative Affairs Director, Hanna Durfee partnered with United Council, Haji Dokhanchi's Political Science class, and enthusiastic campus members to get out the vote and encourage students to exercise their powers as voting citizens.
All students are encouraged to come out and meet their representatives on November 15 during "Meet your Government Night." This event is held to help students understand their resources on campus and within the SGA.
The connections Student Government representatives are making with the student body go a long way, especially in the positive effects it has on their college experience. According to Astin's Theory of Involvement (1995), "students who become actively involved in student government interact frequently with their peers, and this interaction seems to accentuate the changes normally resulting from the college experience."
