1. Student Government Association: A Brief History
Student Government Association (SGA) is a group of elected students in a university. The name of the group may be different from one university to another. For example, at The University of Michigan the name is Student Assembly, whereas at The University of Colorado Boulder the name is Student Government. Despite the fact that these organization have different names, both of them are working in the same mechanism. The history of SGA goes back to 1909, when the first SGA was established at The Ohio State University (“Wikipedia”).

Method. The method of investigation used was a descriptive survey. Data were obtained through the use of two questionnaires. Community college student government leaders and their advisers were surveyed at the 1985 Spring FJCSGA Conference held in West Palm Beach, Florida. A total of 67 percent of the student government leaders present at the conference completed and returned their questionnaires. There was an 87 percent return on the faculty adviser's survey.
Each of the nine state university student government advisers and student government leaders completed the questionnaires. One hundred percent of the advisers responded and a 58 percent return was received from the student government leaders. Responses were received from a total of 188 student government leaders and 38 faculty advisers.

Results. There were statistically significant differences between student government leaders and advisers in universities in the perceptions about the educational value of student government. There were also statistically significant differences in the perceptions of the role of the student government adviser between community college and university students and between community college and university advisers.

Recommendations for Further Research. (1) A similar study of private versus public colleges and universities examining roles and responsibilities of student government leaders, and student government funding. (2) This study should be replicated on a national level to ascertain if there are geographical differences in the perceptions of student government leaders and their faculty advisers.

3. The Historical Development of the Student Government Association as a Student Sub-Culture at The Florida State University: 1946-1976
The focus of this study examines the Student Government Association (SGA) at Florida State University (FSU) from 1946 – 1976. This time period is critical because it covers dramatic and important transitions both at the institutional and state and national levels of educational and social history.

The primary research question to be answered in this study was: How has the student government at Florida State University developed as a student organization
over the time period, 1946 – 1976? Sub-questions addressed in the course of the study included:

How and in what ways did external changes in society between 1946 – 1976 affect the student government as an organization and its members?

How and in what ways did internal changes at Florida State University affect the student government as an organization and its members?

Is there a discernable student sub-culture within student government at FSU?

If so, what are some of the roles, behaviors, rites, rituals, and ceremonies that mark this subculture and how did they develop historically?
