The Student Government seeks to fairly represent the interests and concerns of each member of the student body.
Its purpose is to provide efficient and effective addressing of needs within the student body of the College, to uphold the code of conduct of the community, and to initiate positive activities and programs for the benefit of Pillar students. The Student Government, working in close cooperation with the Vice-President of Student Engagement and Director of Spiritual Development, brings the students as a community into a closer and more vital relationship with the rest of the College community. Every semester the S.G.A. plans, organizes, and implements several events and activities that cultivate fellowship, strengthen community, and boost student morale. Activities may include: retreats, sports, corporate worship, devotionals, talent shows, or workshops.
