MCLA Student Government

The Student Government Association has been active on our campus for over 100 hundred years (est. 1909), performing vital work for the MCLA community and offering valuable experience in student governance. The primary purpose for SGA is to represent the voice of the students on campus. SGA Members sit on committees and meet routinely with college faculty, staff, and administrators to voice any concerns students have and advocate for change.

SGA is in charge of allocating funds to campus clubs and organizations; each student pays an activities fee of $300 ($150 per semester), which is then budgeted by SGA, who administers the Student Activities Trust Fund for all recognized clubs, organizations, and other student-centered activities.

In addition to being class representatives, Class Officers plan class events and fundraising activities to supplement student fees and programs, and to provide a class gift to the college. 

Elections are announced and conducted annually. Please visit the student representatives page to view any dates and updates about elections. To nominate a candidate for either senator or class officer, stop by the Student Government Office, Amsler Campus Center Room 316, to get a nomination form.

One of our annual events is the Sam Gomez Race which benefits a different Berkshire County Organization every year.
