It provides educational benefits to students through positions and programs which develop leadership, professional, academic, or vocational skills. It serves as the official representative for students, and advocate on their behalf to campus, local, state, and national officials. The student government is responsible for enhancing student life, hosting programs, sponsoring various community service events on campus, making recommendations, providing information, and contributing opinions to the college and other areas as well as providing support to the student clubs and organizations on campus.

Why does SGA matter?
McNeese SGA is an outlet to promote change. It gives the students a voice beyond the classroom.
