What does SGA actually do?

SGA is woven into the governance structure of Potomac State College of WVU. SGA officers serve on all faculty/executive committees and councils where they are the “voice of the students.”

SGA sponsors numerous campus-wide programs and activities including, but not limited to, Student Organization Grants, USA Today College Readership Program (free USA Today newspapers for students; stand is located on the front porch of the Student Union), American Red Cross Blood Drives, Ideas and Issues funds for faculty, social mixers, Fall Fest, Winter Fest, Spring Bash, Homecoming Dance, and the end-of-year bus trip for students to an amusement park.

How does SGA help Student Organizations on campus?

SGA has earmarked money for College-sanctioned Student Organizations to use to pay for activities and programs that will benefit the College community.

Student organizations can apply for these monies by completing a SGA Grant Application that is available online, in the Student Affairs Office, or in the SGA Office.

To be eligible for these grants, student organizations must be in good standing with the College, must be officially recognized by the College, and Registered with the Office of Student Involvement.

Special Note: Student Organization Grant opportunities will continue for the 2014-15 academic year.
