(May 3, 2023) - Laurentian University’s Students’ General Association (SGA-AGÉ) recently held its annual elections for incoming 2023-2024 leadership. Avery Morin, who begins her 4th year in Behavioural Neuroscience and Concurrent Education this fall is eager to lead the SGA-AGÉ in her role as President for the second year in a row. She and other elected student leaders will begin their roles in June:

Speaking about her position and goals for the upcoming year, Morin said: "I’m thrilled to be able to advocate for the students of Laurentian as SGA-AGÉ President and continue to make a difference in my school community. My goal as a student leader is to create a positive environment for current and future students to thrive at Laurentian and with the help of my new team members, I’m confident that we’ll be able to pull it off.”
Since the SGA-AGÉ’s inception in 1960, they have advocated for their members at various administrative and government levels. In addition to their political work by and for students, they organize activities and events that help foster a sense of community amongst students.
“Moving forward, my team plans on increasing engagement throughout the association to ensure that students are informed and connected to the SGA-AGÉ. We’re excited to plan amazing events and work collaboratively with our students to make their time at university the best it can be," said Morin.
For students interested in getting involved with the SGA-AGÉ, by-elections will be held early in the Fall semester of 2023. The Association des étudiantes et étudiants (AEF) and the Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) will also be holding by-election in the fall semester.
