The Student Government Association (SGA) is the official voice of the student body.
Cabrini College’s SGA is comprised of 23 undergraduate students holding positions on either the Executive Board or their class board.
SGA also has two chair positions: Academic Chair and Activities Chair.
SGA’s purpose is to serve Cabrini students by holding information sessions and forums about issues of concern and importance to students, as well as serving on college committees.
In addition, members of each class board work closely with their fellow classmates to plan activities that build class spirit and fundraisers to benefit class activities and fund their senior gift.
For more information and guidelines, please see the current SGA Election Packet PDF.
Candidates must be full-time undergraduate students, have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0, and be in good academic and disciplinary standing.
