Why You Should Join the Student Government Association

This week I will be talking about an organization I joined at the end of last year, which is the lovely Student Government Association (SGA)! I chose this week to talk about SGA because the campaign process has begun for the individuals that are choosing to run for positions. I believe that SGA is a great organization to join because it allows you to be able to share your thoughts and opinions with various people who help run the university, even the president! People with various jobs and positions at the university also tend to gage the opinion of students on SGA first before making concrete changes to our university. 

Through SGA I have also had the ability to be on various committees including drug policy, earth week, speaker review board, DePaul TedX speaker selection, and sexual assault and mental health. Being on these committees allowed me to partake in events and decisions that brought so much change to DePaul. There are also elections in the fall so if you are going to be a freshman next year, check it out then! 

Being a part of SGA truly made me feel like I was making positive changes on DePaul’s campus and also gave me the opportunity to work with and get to know some amazing student leaders here. If you have any questions about SGA at all, feel free to ask away!
