Student Government Association

SGA logoThe Moorhead campus Campus Student Government Association meets from 3-4:30 p.m. on Thursdays in C121. Visitors are welcome, and you can contact Director of Student Engagement Teresa Stolfus to get on the agenda.

Students elected to the SGA make decisions to reflect the interests and opinions of Moorhead campus students. It operates under the M State SGA constitutions and bylaws, and decisions are determined by voting.

New student senators are elected each fall and spring semester. If you’re interested in joining the SGA, watch your email for a link to the nomination form or get a copy of the current nomination form from Teresa Stolfus and submit it by the specified due date.

Eligibility requirements for SGA include: Be a current student, enroll in at least six credits; have a minimum GPA of 2.0 (except for first-semester nominees) and attend SGA meetings regularly.
