Every month SGA hosts a coffee hour for students to gather, discuss issues, brainstorm ideas, and work together to improve our college community.  Student Government often invites special guests to share their knowledge on scholarships, college innovations, and other information of interest to the general student body.  Students have an opportunity to voice their concerns, make suggestions for college betterment, and get to know their student government leaders.  Networking Hour is once per month, located on the first floor of the college center.  Free coffee, tea, and refreshments are provided.   

General Assembly
Each month SGA welcomes all students and club representatives to come together for a general assembly meeting to share information and hear the monthly reports of all current and future club activities or events.  The meeting is held during College hour on the last Tuesday of each month.  

College Forum      
The college forum is an open meeting for all faculty, students, and staff.  Students are invited to participate in discussing issues that are related to developing policies, co-curriculum, and how the college is being operated.  The Forum is during College Hour, on the first Tuesday of every month.
