Student Government Association
The Student Government Association (SGA) works to establish firm communication between all college stakeholders, to assess problems, make positive improvements, and coordinate changes within the college. The SGA is the advocate for the Albright College student body, a liaison between students and college administration, and the representative of our students to the Albright College Board of Trustees. The SGA is a proactive body providing opportunities for leadership development, involvement, and personal growth within the Albright College community. It promotes student involvement and is a forum that student clubs and organizations may approach for assistance, encouragement, and support.

I came into Albright knowing I wanted to be a student leader and a role model for my peers, and my involvement on campus, as well as my role on SGA has given me that opportunity.

Without going to Albright College, there is no way to know if I would have gone through Formal Recruitment and received a bid to Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. I truly have met some of the most incredible and most inspiring people due to joining a sorority and finding a home away from home with ADPi and Albright. I just hope other people can find what makes them feel at home at Albright as well!
