Student Government

You have a voice at Elmira. Every student is a member of the Student Association (SA), so you have a way to express your opinions and get things accomplished. The SA is the governing body of the students and helps to address the concerns, interests, and values of those living on campus. There are opportunities for you to hold an office as SA Executive if you choose.
