With great power comes great responsibility

Get excited, guys — following the recent election, SGB has changed its board. Say hello to the new powers that be:

Treasurer: Rajan Gupta

Secretary: Rakhi Agrawal

    @Sorry for being disengaged But what exactly does SGB do?

    1. I says:

      @I The SGB represents political, religious, activist, and humanitarian groups on campus. They stand up for the rights of all students on campus in front of administration across the board. They’re the oldest governing board and cover all four undergraduate schools. Truly an awesome group of people to be around.
