Where can I find the form to start a new student organization?
To begin the process, you must fill out the ‘Application for SGA Endorsement of New Student Organization’ on Engage.
Will SGA be offering free rides for Thanksgiving and Winter Breaks?
We will be offering free Uber rides to the airport, bus station and train station for both Thanksgiving and Winter break. Please check our SGA Instagram, website and other social media for specific times and more info when it is announced.
How do I make an Uber account and use SGA’s free rides?
- 1. Once you accept the invitation from Uber, it will link your personal account to your @butler.edu email address.
- 2. When you are in your account and ready to select a ride, above “Confirm Ride” there is a toggle button that allows you to charge to Butler SGA or your personal account. If it is within the parameters, select Butler SGA and it will automatically charge to the SGA account.
I just committed to Butler and want to get involved in SGA next year. How can I do that?
Congratulations on your admission and commitment! We’re so excited to have you join the Butler family and thrilled to hear that you want to become involved in SGA. The best way to hear about SGA position openings and opportunities is to follow our social media accounts, particularly our Instagram and Twitter. (@ButlerSGA) We utilize these accounts heavily to advertise open positions and upcoming events! We have lots of ways to first-year students to find their home with SGA at the beginning of the academic year, including first-year board member positions and senate elections. Our website, sga.butler.edu has lots of great information about the SGA structure and what each of our boards does. Board and Senate applications generally are released in late August/early September, and we hope to see you apply!
If a sign up is in person only and I can’t make it, can my roommate/friend/etc sign up on my behalf?
For in-person only event signups, you must be physically present with your Butler ID to sign up. Any exceptions to this rule will be noted in event advertising through our social media feeds.
