Founded in 1914, the Student Government Association has a rich tradition of serving the student body. The purpose of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to advocate students’ rights; to facilitate communication between administration, faculty, and the student body; to promote the qualities of justice, leadership, and integrity; and to better the Huntingdon College community and the Montgomery community in which we live.
The SGA is comprised of three branches:
- Executive: SGA officers/senior cabinet
- Legislative: Student Senate, comprised of senators appointed or elected to represent recognized student organizations or academic programs
- Judicial: Judicial Board, comprised of a chief justice and other student justices, faculty and staff, oversees matters of alleged infraction on the College’s “Behavior Expectations of Students” (see the Student Handbook), and on the Huntingdon Honor Code.
SGA is also a source of student programming through Freshman Forum, the voice of first-year students in Student Government. Freshman Forum plans several events for the purpose of engaging Huntingdon freshmen in college life each year.
In addition to the Student Government Association, each class elects officers for a Class Council.
