Good Year for SGA

   TThe Student Government Association has done its best this year to represent the interest of the students. I am very proud of the 27 students who represented the student body this year. We have been able to support student organizations and create more student activities for the student body. If you want to make a difference or a change at U of O, then get involved in your Student Government Association for next year. The SGA Elections are April 24th and 25th.
