Are you Interested in being on Student Government Association?


Student Government Association is a great way to get involved at Youngstown State University.  Student Government allows you to represent the student at YSU by allowing you to be a part of the decisions that effect so many of our students. If you are interested in being a part of SGA, please feel free to watch our presentation on what Student Government is and how to get involved! 

Previous SGA Members, President Shaughnessy and Vice President Howard, talk about Student Government Association at Youngstown State University.
