The purpose of the Penn State Altoona Student Government is to serve as a productive and democratic system of representation, to promote the welfare of the student body and of the University as a whole. As the official representative government of the student body, SGA works closely with the Division of Student Affairs and the Center for Student and Civic Engagement to improve the Penn State Altoona experience for you.
SGA meetings are open to any member of the student body to attend. Meetings occur every Tuesday in the Fireside Lounge in Slep Student Center from 12:15-1:05. There are no meetings held the first and last week of each semester.
