SGA 101: Recap on SGA’s First Student Body Meeting

This afternoon, members of Xavier University of Louisiana’s Student Government Association hosted their first student body meeting in the University Center ballroom and discussed upcoming events, homecoming, and most current, the freshman elections. Every student that pays the activity fee has the right to vote because all Xavier students are a member of SGA. To clarify, the Executive Board members are elected servant leaders that represent the students when communicating to administration and other parties as SGA as a whole works to be a voice for all students on campus. Those E-board, or class officer positions include: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, two Senators, and lastly, Mr. and Ms. Xavier. The positions for classes are, President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, two Senators Mr. and Ms.(classification).
