Sara Behuniak
SGA President

Hello! My name is Sara Behuniak and I am your Student Government Association President for the 2013-2014 school year.  I am a senior Politics major with an Environmental Studies and Pre-Law minor.  I'm from the town of Latham, which is right outside of Albany.

Last year I was Student Government Association Vice President and I've been honored yet again to serve as a representative to the students.  I believe that SGA is an important resource to the students and their needs and I hope to be able to represent as many of the voices from the student body as I can.  Part of my job as President deals with bringing the opinions and the concerns of the students to the administration and so I'm always here to help, answer questions, and basically just be an asset to the students.

Stop by the SGA office to ask me any questions or to just come talk or to schedule an appointment.  I can be reached at sgapres@potsdam.edu, or by phone at (315) 267-3285.  I'm here to represent you, the students.  I'm your SGA President and I serve at the pleasure of the students.

Scott P. Turner
SGA Vice President

My name is Scott P. Turner and I am your Student Government Association  (SGA) Vice President and President of the Assembly . I transferred to SUNY Potsdam this past fall (fall '12) from Morrisville State. I am a junior in the Creative Writing program and hopefully will soon declare my Political Science major. I am also proud to serve as LGBTAA President, Gaming Club Vice President and SES Outreach chair this year.

I see SGA as a way for all students to be able to participate, either through the Assembly and Senate or through clubs. SGA helps give a voice to the students, and I am proud to help students anyway I can, whether it be something on campus they would like to see changed or starting a new club. If you are looking to get involved on campus I always suggest joining the Assembly or joining one of our many clubs. If you don't see clubs that you like come and talk to me and I can help you get started on the process of making one.

If you have any questions stop by my office (Barrington 217) or at the main SGA office (Barrington 213). You can also schedule an appointment with me by contacting me at my e-mail sgavp@potsdam.edu.

Zach Slocum

Hello folks, I am Zachary Slocum, your SGA Treasurer and a History Education major as well as all around cool guy. I am also an active member of the MMA Club here on campus.

The Student Government Association greatly benefits, well, us students. It gives us a voice as well as funding for clubs, and I can't quite imagine anyone who would dislike that. SGA allows many great opportunities for the students and, therefore, I would recommend everyone join SGA. Participate in a club, join the Senate or Assembly, you could even start your own club if you'd like. Find some way to get involved. The purpose of SGA is to benefit you, the students.

All are more than welcome to stop by the SGA office in the Barrington Student Union. You can also email me any questions you may have. My e-mail is sgatres@potsdam.edu.

Katrina Macaluso
SGA Secretary

My name is Katrina Macaluso and I am your Student Government Association Secretary for the 2013-2014 year.  I am a junior Spanish-Education double major.  I am a transfer student and I got here at Potsdam in the Fall of 2012.  I'm happy that I can be a part of SGA and reach out to the students.

SGA is an important part of the SUNY system.  It's a voice for the students and a way for students to express themselves through clubs, organizations, and events that they provide for the students.  It's easy to make your voice be heard by joining a club or by joining Assembly and representing a specific group of the student body.  My goal is to increase the knowledge of the students about SGA.  If you want more information you can email me at SGAsec@potsdam.edu.
