One of the most common questions we get is, what exactly does the SGA do?
- We manage and allocate the Student Activities Fee (SAF) to MCAB, Social Houses, Inter Commons Council, Senior Committee, and over 150 other student organizations through the SGA Finance Committee.
- We review existing student organizations and approve new ones every year through the SGA Constitution Committee.
- We discuss and pass legislation on issues including textbook accessibility, distribution requirements, mental health, financial aid, accessibility, and more.
- We recommend and appoint students to sit on bodies such as the Board of Trustees Investment Committee, Honor Code Review Committee, Environmental Council, Student-Athletic Advisory Committee, to name a few.
- We built, run, and maintain the course review site called MiddCourses with thousands of reviews on hundreds of professors and courses.
- We subsidize and help organize the Middlebury Break Buses which take you to Boston, New York, Montreal, or the Burlington Airport during school breaks.
- We provide free copies of the New York Times to each of the dinning halls every Sunday-Friday.
- We provide the Arts & Crafts Corner above the Crest Room in McCullough for any student to be creative.
- We organize 10 o'clock Ross, where every Monday-Thursday you can enjoy a late night snack at the Ross Dinning Hall.
