We, the elected students of the Columbia College Student Government Association (SGA), exist to organize student voices and positive actions into a unified representation of the student body and to convey viable solutions, ideas and concerns to the institution.

Dear Columbia College Cougars,

“I believe that every right implies a responsibility and every opportunity, an obligation.”    -John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (1941 speech)

This quote is a great representation of both the benefits of having a Student Government Association and the requirements its members need to possess. Fortunately, Columbia College students have been granted the right to have a Student Government Association, and our association has almost limitless opportunities to positively impact our school and community. As for the responsibility and obligation, our SGA consists of truly dedicated, determined, and diligent students. We will work throughout the year to ensure that every voice is heard and every opinion, suggestion, and concern is considered. We will strive to be an invaluable resource for students, clubs and organizations, faculty and staff, and community members. With the right and opportunity for our Student Government to serve you, we are so honored to be obligated to our responsibilities! We appreciate any input you are willing to provide us, look forward to your participation in our events, and encourage you to consider running for an SGA position. Thank you for your continued interest and support!

Thank you,
Sarah Barris
President, Student Government Association of Columbia College
