    Get involved SGA aka Student Government Association is the voice of the student on campus. I have been in SGA for two semesters Fall of 2009-2010 and this Spring of 2010-2011. SGA offers Books and Tuition Scholarships for those students who are interested in taking a stand and being on the Executive board, where as I am actually the Executive Treasuer, its a great experience for anyone that really like communicating with students.
