Our Commitment to Progress

The Student Government Association is constantly working on projects and initiatives that address important issues within the college and be an advocate for the student body.  Take a look at some of our past projects to learn about what the SGA had achieved historically and also some of our current projects to stay up to date on what we're up to!


Feminine Hygiene Products

In an effort to make Feminine Hygiene Products more accessible, SGA partnered with facilities. Starting with the 1st-floor L-wing women's restroom, free tampons and pads are available for free. Our hope is to continue opening the conversation on reproductive health.
