Subject line: Meet Your Student Government 

Sent: August 31, 2022

 

Loyola’s Student Government Association (SGA) is deeply involved in matters affecting our campus community. From racial equity issues to sustainability measures to community service, your SGA is here for you on the topics that matter. You can visit our website here: https://sga.loyno.edu/.

Loyola’s SGA promises to: 

  • Promote student welfare
  • Establish an effective and representative student leadership body
  • Exchange transparent ideas between students and the administration
  • Advocate for student interest and needs
  • Encourage students to be educated on important issues that impact our university
  • Assume our position in SGA with the fullest power and responsibility to lead a trustworthy self-government 

The SGA also plays a big role in campus fun, hosting signature events through the University Programming Board like Wolf Pack Wednesday, which gives students the chance to show their Loyola pride. Weekly giveaways are offered on the front porch of the Danna Student Center to those wearing maroon, gold, or Loyola gear! 

First Year Council (FYC) 

FYC is a program developed by the Student Government Association to help first-year members of our community engage their leadership potential on campus. FYC is required for students in their first semester before they can serve on any other SGA committees. Through learning the ins and outs of SGA, attending mentoring opportunities, planning a campus wide event, and assisting in campus-wide initiatives, FYC is a great first step into the leadership opportunities that Loyola has to offer. Complete the FYC application online. Questions? Email sga@loyno.edu.
