The Georgia Perimeter College Student Government Association

Prior to earning his bachelor of business administration in accounting at the Georgia State University Robinson College of Business, Yuriy Shor obtained an associate degree in business administration from Georgia Perimeter College. While there, Yuriy Shor was elected president of the Student Government Association (SGA).

The Georgia Perimeter College SGA governs according to its Constitution, a document that outlines the rules and explains the checks and balances of the organization. According to the document, the SGA can appoint student representatives to various school committees to ensure that the student body’s interests are represented.

Much like the US government, the SGA performs duties through several branches: executive, judicial, and legislative, as well as a programming board, known as the Jaguar Activity Group, or JAG. Candidates for JAG undergo an extensive application and interview process. Once assembled, JAG members maintain responsibility for planning educational and entertainment events for students at the college.
