The Southeastern Illinois College Student Government is the only recognized representative body for the student community, and it has a number of different functions – from helping fund many student-run organizations to addressing student issues and concerns, to proposing resolutions that brings about change in the academic and social life of campus. The student body elects members of the Student Government. Students interested in serving must complete a petition with one faculty and 25 student signatures. Meetings are held twice each month and are open to anyone interested.
