Student Government Association

We hope you navigated to this page because you are interested in taking responsibility for your University experience. We are transfers, undocumented people, STU residents, commuters, former athletes, former interns, mathematicians, community organizers, global marketing wizards, university publication editors, and even students... While we all see the world and life slightly differently, we are all thrilled to be here for you as your leaders on campus.

We encourage you to take full advantage of all the wonderful possibilities that STU has to offer, and to take part in the many University activities at St. Thomas. Our success as a group largely depends on you. Are your needs being met? Are you being challenged? Is the University doing what they say they are doing? Are you lost and in need of resources and direction? Have a brilliant idea? See something going on elsewhere and want to bring it here? Visit our offices at the Center for Student Involvement in the Student Center. We are open from 9 to 5. You can also contact us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

SGA Board Members

Student Senate

The Student Senate is the legislative body of the SGA. It is composed of students who are passionate about the growth and development of the University. We see and feel the areas that need attention at the university, and speak to those that are able to implement positive change.

The Senate’s purpose is to represent the students. We are qualified because we are students and we are connected. We believe that we have an accurate pulse of the issues around campus affecting our diverse student population.

If you have a concern, please drop us an email so we can set up a meeting.
