Student Activities Council
The Student Activities Council (SAC) is a student organization whose purpose is to provide co-curricular activities for the West Georgia community, and we're bringing you free events every week!
Our mission is to provide a number of diverse cultural, recreational, social, educational, and entertainment programs, and is implemented through seven program committees. These committees are:
- Public Relations
- University Traditions
- Live Music
- Special Events
- Sports & Entertainment
- Issues & Ideas
Together, the Directors and their committee members are responsible for planning and producing a variety of events. SAC is funded by the students of West Georgia through a portion of their activities fee that is allocated to us.
The President and the Vice President of Recruitment and Administrative Affairs create the "Executive Board."
We are always looking for new faces and ideas, so head on over to fill out an interest form. You can even connect with us on Wolf Connect.
