Organizations and Activities

Gateway's Office of Student Activities and Leadership Programs along with our student organizations coordinate a wide variety of social, cultural, recreational, leadership and special activities that enrich both the College and community. Most activities are primarily for students, but some are open to the public. Student activity fees fund the student activities program within the framework of a yearly budget.

The Student Government Association (SGA) recognizes numerous student organizations that are formed by special interest student groups and advised by a member of the College staff. New student organizations may be formally recognized by the SGA throughout the academic year. All student organizations must be recognized by the SGA in order to become a student organization on campus and to receive funding from the Student Activity Fund.
