The Holy Cross College Student Government Association (SGA) is a student-run organization that represents and acts in the interests of the students in their academic and community endeavors.

To achieve these goals, SGA’s power is balanced into three divisions:

  • The Executive Board
  • Programming Board
  • Student Senate

Between the three branches, SGA provides students the opportunity to develop leadership skills, engage in service, and make a difference on campus. We encourage you to get involved and share your unique perspective.

Executive Board

The Executive Board is comprised of the President, Vice President, and Chief of Staff. Their responsibilities include administering the Student Senate and Programming Board, as well as representing the students to the Holy Cross College administration.

The SGA Programming Board aligns itself with the mission of Holy Cross College and consists of five committees:

  • Dog Pound Committee

  • Social Concerns Committee

This Board organizes and hosts events for students, has a commitment to social responsibility and community involvement, and fosters the spiritual growth of our campus. Through our guiding principles, the Programming Boards strives to promote a holistic student experience.
