In collaboration with UNCW’s Student Government Association (SGA), UNCW Archives has designed a new exhibit "Building a Stronger Community: UNCW Student Government Association" showcasing Seahawk student government. The exhibit celebrates democracy and representative student government, featuring documents, photographs, books, student newspapers and other memorabilia. It runs from October 17 through December 5, 2012.
Since 1947 the SGA—formerly the Student Council—has built and strengthened campus community. The average Seahawk may not realize just how completely SGA enriches the student experience. A few examples are Saferides, a cab voucher program; free legal services; “Feel My Teal” t-shirts at basketball games; and funding for all student organizations. With their revamped motto, “Your Voice, Your Vision,” UNCW’s SGA strives to create a campus environment that is shaped by the entire student body.
The virtual exhibit contains images from the exhibit.
Visit Special Collections Monday through Friday until December 5 to view the physical exhibit. Hours vary during University holidays and breaks.
