Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What can Owens SG do for me?

A. Student Government is your voice on campus. SG members are your direct link to the people who make the real decisions. From the president of the College to the teachers to the security services, they are all here because of you and they want to know what you think and what you need. Student Government is the way to bring all your needs and concerns to their attention.

Q. How do I get my concerns heard?

A. Contact us! We're all over these halls-chances are, you've already seen us. If you have a hard time locating one of us, however, visit our contact page. You can also come and visit us during our office hours.

Q. Is there a separate Student Government for the Findlay Campus?

A. No. Although they are from different campuses, Student Government members represent both campuses.

Q. Do the Student Government members really care about the students concerns?

A. We're students, too! First, we face the same situations (and frustrations) as any other Owens student. Chances are, when a member brings up a student concern at one of our meetings, there is always one or more of us saying, "I've noticed that, too" or "I have to drive over that same bumpy railroad track everyday!" Your concerns are also our concerns. Second, unlike many other college student governments, Owens Community College officers do not get paid or compensated for our dedication. We do this job because we want to -- for sheer self-indulgence and satisfaction!

Q. How do I join Owens Student Government?

A. Elections are held every spring semester for all positions, for that year's term. If you are interested throughout the year, contact any current student government member through email, in our office, or by phone. We welcome any hardworking student willing to help!
