Why should I join ASG?

Your participation in student government at SBCC can prove to be one of the most valuable and meaningful experiences of your college career. You'll need to commit time and effort, but nearly all who've served on ASG will tell you it's worth the investment.

Your participation in student government is recognized favorably by the colleges and universities that you hope to transfer to, as well as prospective employers. Additionally, you'll have a voice in what decisions are made on campus, and you'll have the opportunity to associate with and learn from college administrators, faculty, staff, and other driven students.

You'll gain experience in public administration, parliamentary procedure,  project development, event planning, fundraising, financial management, marketing, public relations, and much more. Additionally, being in a leadership role and participating in decision-making will cultivate your personal qualities and leadership skills.
