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.
