The Political Science Club provides a venue for the discussion of political and governmental issues that enrich the academic programs of political science majors and minors as well as those of other students. The club provides an opportunity for students to discuss controversial issues, explore current events, participate in field trips, and acquire diverse perspectives on government and politics in local, state, national, and global arenas.
The Model UN Club invites all students who are interested in the United Nations process of decision-making. The club provides an opportunity for students to develop their knowledge of international issues as well as to develop their debating skills. Club members participate in a national Model UN conference, where mock simulations are conducted with delegations from other universities, each representing a country, to debate in favor of or opposition to select resolutions before the Model UN body of delegates.

Academic awards and honors are distributed each year to deserving students.

To provide this service, the SGA organizes and directs student concerns through the proper channels, and works to provide students with the resources they need to succeed. The SGA provides the students with an organized voice in matters regarding the university at large. In a word: The SGA is the voice of the student body.
