Whenever possible, students are encouraged to develop some outside activities in addition to their academic studies. A well balanced college career consists of both extracurricular involvement and classroom and laboratory work. This will lead to a better, more all-around individual.
The Harrison College of Pharmacy, like all functioning college bodies, has a system of student input into campus and college affairs. Through involvement, the student can help represent fellow students and assure adequate student input.
The student can become involved at the campus level through the Student Government Association (S.G.A.) which represents the students in campus and college affairs. Each student, upon paying student activity fees, becomes a member of the Student Government Association. Offices of the executive branch of the S.G.A. are outlined in the Tiger Cub, along with duties, qualifications, and requirements for election. The executive cabinet and executive committee performs integral function in the S.G.A. These appointed positions are filled by the S.G.A. President each Spring after elections. Interested students are encouraged to apply directly to the S.G.A. President. The Student Senate is also a vital part of the S.G.A. The qualifications, duties and requirements for senators are found HERE. There are twenty-nine senators elected from the schools and colleges. There are five senators-at-large which may be enrolled in any school or college and are to be voted on by the entire student body. The Harrison College of Pharmacy has one representative to the Student Senate. The senator from the Harrison College of Pharmacy has a voice in the Student Senate and is a member of the HCOP Student Council.
