Student Government Association
Throughout the year, the Student Government Association (SGA) facilitates, coordinates and participates in numerous activities, and initiates policy proposals to benefit the student body.
SGA encourages student leadership on campus and works to promote healthy relationships between students and faculty/staff through dialogue with university administrators. The goal is to better serve undergraduates and enrich each student's Ambrosian experience.

Bee the Difference
Our students make an impact on campus and in the community! In 2018, more than 600 took part in Bee the Difference Day. It is an annual volunteer event coordinated by SGA in which our students help 120 campus neighbors get their homes and yards ready for winter. It is work, fun, and so rewarding.

The Beginning of SGA
With the needs of the students growing, the demand for a representative organization began to grow too. The students rallied and elected nine classmates to form a Student Government Board. St. Ambrose College (as it was then named) granted and recognized the creation of a student council. The first formal meeting was held during the fall semester of 1926.
From the 1925-1926 Yearbook
"During the scholastic year, 1925-1926, the Student Council was organized in the College Department. The purpose of this organization is to cooperate with the faculty and the administration of all matters pertaining to the student body. It tends to better the morale of the students by placing on their shoulders a share of the responsibility in managing their affairs and gives them an opportunity for self-expression, whether personally or through their representatives.
"All classes will have at least two representatives on the Student Council. The freshman are allowed two delegates, sophomores three, juniors four, and seniors five. The president and the vice-president of the senior class are ex officio president and vice-president of the Council. The presidents of the freshman, sophomore and junior classes are ex officio members of the Council. The delegates hold weekly meetings at which anything of student interest is discussed. Recommendations are voted on and then, subject to the approval of the Council advisor and Board of Discipline, are put into effect."
