Brookhaven College Student Government

You have a voice at Brookhaven College through the Brookhaven Student Government Association.

The Brookhaven Student Government Association is an elected and appointed group of students that is given the opportunity to represent the students of Brookhaven College, their issues and concerns.

The purpose of BSGA is to contribute to the college and its students in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, providing a channel for communication between the student body and the administration and faculty, ensure quality representation while encouraging participation from the study body, and serve as a primary voice for the needs of all students.

By becoming a member of BSGA, students have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally, gain a network of support, work with legislators and gain leadership and lobbying experience, learn conflict management techniques and become better public speakers among many other things.
