First off, welcome to the Student Government Association (SGA) webpage at Radford University. SGA was founded in 1914 upon the opening of State Normal and Industrial School for Women at Radford and has the distinction of being the oldest organization on RU’s campus. Today Radford’s SGA does everything from advocate the importance of Radford University in Richmond, VA to What Do You Want Wednesdays (You know, we’re the guys in the golf cart). SGA is above all an organization of students for student interests. All students of Radford University are automatically a part of SGA. We make it our goal to make student life better in whatever way we can. This website contains everything from bios of all of our Senate, Cabinet and Staff, and Executive members, to provisions passed through our SGA senate.
We are in an exciting time in Radford history. Our campus is growing by leaps and bounds, and we are receiving more and more attention nationally for our excellence in academics and affordability. This time of growth has also been reflected within SGA as we attempt to improve student awareness of issues on campus and find new ways to serve the students of RU. This is a critical time for SGA’s nationwide because as our society quickly evolves and changes, so must government systems. Here are Radford we have a vibrant student culture that must be preserved in order to provide students the famed “Radford Experience.” SGA is a vital part of that culture. It provides students a true outlet to vocalize their concerns about the university and helps them make the crucial connections that are necessary for change. We are an organization of thinkers, dreamers, achievers, and believers all working together for one cause— you.
Our SGA senate meetings are from 5-7, every Monday in Bonnie 250. Please feel free to come by our office or email us at email@example.com. We look forward to working, as always, with you and for you.
