The Student Government Association serves as the official voice for undergraduate students at Virginia Tech.
The SGA elects a new president, vice president, treasurer and secretary each spring. The SGA4You ticket holds the 2009-10 executive positions.
Brandon Carroll ― President
Shane McCarty ― Vice President
Joey Zakutney ― Treasurer
Ellen Cupp ― Secretary
Cupp replaced Morgan Bradley as secretary in September 2009 after Bradley resigned for personal reasons.
Responsibilities of the SGA include passing legislation that then is reviewed by administrators. SGA legislation has no binding effect, but the Blacksburg Transit and Virginia Tech Climate Action Commitment are both grounded in previous legislation.
The SGA also organizes campus events such as the Big Event and Relay for Life.
