Activities & Organizations

College education extends beyond the classroom. That’s why we offer ways to get involved outside of the classroom.  Studies have shown that students who become involved in activities and organizations on campus stay in school longer, have a higher graduation rate, enjoy a better relationship with faculty and staff, and report a higher level of satisfaction with their college experience. It’s a great way to try new things, meet new people, and have fun!!


LSUA has a variety of organizations that meet our students' interests and needs.

Student Government

Student Government (SG) is the elected voice of students on university matters. All students are automatically members of SG upon registration. Elections to select SG President, Vice President, Senior, Junior, and Sophomore Senators are held in the spring. Elections for Freshman Senators are held in the fall. Students are encouraged to get involved with SG and voice their opinions on university and student issues. Students are encouraged to attend weekly SG meetings.
