Student Government Association Alumni, we invite you back to campus to catch up with fellow PSU SGA Alumni and celebrate SGA’s 100th Anniversary!

The reunion kicks off with Yell Like Hell and Royalty Crowning on Thursday evening. President Steve Scott hosts breakfast on Friday morning followed by campus tours of some of our newest buildings, Taste of Pittsburg, and an SGA After Hours at a new local brewery. Ride in the parade with SGA alumni to start Saturday morning, followed by an open house at the SGA Office, and a reunion photo.
