Franklin has something for everyone! Whether you like acting, skiing or discussing current political issues, you can find your niche at Franklin in at least one of the 22 clubs here on campus. If you prefer planning student events, allocating funds to clubs and discussing student issues, then you might want to check out the Franklin Student Government Association.

Student Government Association (SGA)

The Franklin University Switzerland Student Government Association (SGA), elected by the student body at large, assumes the duty of representing students’ needs and interests in all facets of University life, from academics to student engagement. The Association is composed of an assembly of elected student representatives and a five-person executive board. The Student Government Association itself, under the oversight of the President, Vice-President of Development, Vice-President of Programming and Clubs, the Treasurer, and the Secretary, is composed of the following five committees: Academics and Policy, Community Development and Initiatives, Programming and Clubs, Budget Inventory and Data, and Public Relations and History. The General Assembly holds open meetings weekly to manage assorted university social events, allocate student funds and to discuss the refinement of university policies in line with students’ interests. The SGA is responsible for providing students opportunities to develop and enhance their leadership abilities while promoting institutional improvement and innovation.

Our weekly meetings are on Wednesdays at 19:15 in the North Campus Conference Room.

Everyone is welcome!
