The Westhampton College Government Association was established in 1914 by students of Westhampton College. WCGA seeks to help students confidently pursue their passions and does this by representing student opinions, developing university-wide programming, maintaining traditions, and providing students with an opportunity to be leaders.
WCGA members value leadership, integrity, and tradition as a way to make an impact throughout the campus community through their participation on the Executive Board, Senate, or Class Cabinets. By upholding the WCGA constitution, students strive to make the College a safer, healthier, and happier place for all.
Students who identify with Westhampton are eligible to run for all roles on WCGA and together they make up our body. WCGA works closely with the administration and the students, acting as a bridge. Every single day we lead by example, listen to our peers, and strive to make the University of Richmond better.
