Student Government Association and Senate of SWOSU at Weatherford
The Voice of the Students! The Student Government Association (SGA) is the governing body of SWOSU students. Student fees fund the operations of the SGA, and student-elected officers oversee the expenditure of those funds. The three branches of the SGA (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) work together to lead students by serving them. The SGA is the advocate for student interests, a powerful voice for change and progress, and a dedicated provider of student services and resources.
The SGA has accomplished many things on this campus, including: making Martin Luther King, Jr day a university holiday, bringing paper recycling to this campus, making SWOSU tobacco free, and planning SWOSUpalooza every year. The SGA is always looking for enthusiastic and responsible students to participate in making decisions for the students of the university.
