Student Government Association
The Fergus Falls campus Student Government Association meets virtually from 3-4 p.m. on Thursdays. SGA is a group of elected students who work closely with administration to provide the best possible college experience for all students.
Their responsibilities include event planning, addressing issues and overseeing the student life budget. They operate under the M State SGA constitution and bylaws, and decisions are made by voting.
Students are encouraged to bring questions and concerns to the SGA office. They can also be conveyed by emailing Lauren Proels.
New student senators are elected each fall and spring semester. Interested applicants can obtain the M State SGA application from Lauren Proels and submit it by the specified due date.
