Student Events and Entertainment
Student Governance Advising
Through Student Government Advising, we offer these student leaders development opportunities for reflection on their leadership journey, help them navigate university systems when advocating for change, and guide them as they operate their large organizations.
Every student on campus is represented by one of the following Recognized Student Governance Associations:
Student Unions & Activities employs students in retail, event planning, building management, marketing, and student activities. Student workers in our department develop valuable career and leadership skills while enjoying the flexibility and convenience of on-campus employment. Our department strives to foster a supportive environment where students of all backgrounds can flourish and connect with one another.
Board of Governors
The Board of Governors (BOG) serves as a voice for students in the policies and operations of Student Unions & Activities. Through the Board’s leadership, the student unions are able to adapt to the changing needs of the campus community by adding services, lobbying successfully for renovations and increasing hours of operation.
