MCLA Student Government

The Student Government is the representative body of students at MCLA that oversees and funds over 50 campus clubs and organizations and gives students a voice with the college administration while advocating for positive change on campus.

The Student Government consists of Senators, an Executive Cabinet, and Class Officers -- all of whom you elect to represent student needs. Since 1909, the Student Government at MCLA has been bringing student concerns to administrators and leading student initiatives, like the annual Sam Gomez Race, which will be held in the spring of 2020 this year.

How is Student Government funded?

Each MCLA student pays an activities fee of $150 per semester into the Student Activities Trust Fund, which the Student Government then allocates to the student body by funding recognized clubs, organizations, and other student-centered activities. 

Drop by!

Student Government general assembly meetings are held on Mondays at 7 p.m. in Murdock 218. Stop by if you would like to voice your opinion on a topic on this week’s agenda. 

You can also visit the Student Government office on the third floor of the campus center (room 316) for resources on hosting events and using funding for your club or organization. Office hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Student Government pays for MCLA students to have access to the Berkshire Eagle and USA Today? Print copies can be found in the marketplace on the first floor of the campus center and in the pod in Bowmen. Students can also use this link to access an online version of USA Today.
