Welcome from your SGA Cabinet

LWC SGA Executive Cabinet

Welcome to the homepage for the Lindsey Wilson Student Government Association! We have specifically crafted our website to better serve the needs of Lindsey Wilson College students and those affiliated with our organization. On the site, you will find information about the elected leaders of the LWC SGA. Our job is to serve and to voice the concerns of the student population, so I highly encourage you to reach out and speak with one or all of your respective representatives.

In addition, you are granted access to invaluable information about our organization and other clubs on campus. Through our website's interactive components, you are able to download the necessary paperwork to create and maintain clubs and organizations on campus and to submit student concerns to the Cabinet and Senate with ease.

Because of the collective effort to serve the educational and spiritual needs of every student, every day, Lindsey Wilson College is a special place. The Student Government Association is proud to enhance the lives of LWC Blue Raiders through hosting fun events year-round and working with college administrators to bring about needed change. If there is anything SGA or I can do for you, please let us know. We will be happy to help!

Funds Request Form

    Please print off a copy of the fund's request and fill out all information completely and correctly. You may then bring the completed form by the SGA office or you may send an electronic copy to SGA@lindsey.edu. The appropriations committee will then decide on an appropriate amount of money to grant to the respective club/organization based on the request. If approved it will then be voted on by the Senate at the next meeting following the appropriations committee approval. Due to this lengthy process, it is recommended to submit a funds request 3 weeks before you actually need the money.
