Representing Wake Forest
students since 1923.
The Student Government website is currently under reconstruction. Please be patient as we complete changes and updates.
Who We Are
Student Government is the representative body of the undergraduate College and School of Business elected to serve students from all of Wake Forest’s classes. Members bring their varied backgrounds, identities, and interests to create an institution representative of Wake Forest’s diverse student body
Membership is composed of representatives from each of Wake Forest’s undergraduate classes. Freshman are elected solely by their residence halls and upperclassmen are elected at large.
We listen to students and address their concerns. We connect the gap between students and administrators. We support student groups and sponsor house life. We encourage events on campus and improve student life. We are here for the students. We are SG.
Student Government weekly Senate meetings are held Tuesdays at 7:00 PM in Benson 401. They are open to all Wake Forest students, faculty, and staff.
Since 1923, we have been rooted in the history of Wake Forest’s development as a world-class institution. Our organization has come to demonstrate committed student leadership in our community.
SG was a leader in the movement to integrate the school – integrate the school –an accomplishment finally achieved after an affirmative vote of the Senate led the faculty and the Board of Trustees to act. More recently, S.G.has been successful in securing expanded on-campus housing for students in a rather controversial action that saw North Campus Apartments refurbished from faculty residences to fit the needs of an evolving campus.

Student Government works with a semi-presidential system. The Executive & Cabinet in turn work closely with members of the Senate to pass legislation and advocate on behalf of Wake Forest students.

Celebrating its 99th year, Student Government has experienced a resurgence in the eyes of the student body. The organization is dependent upon committed leadership and prides itself on being in touch with the pulse of the campus happenings and student well-being.
