Here at the University of Lynchburg, we are granted with many excellent opportunities. We are lucky to have some of the finest faculty and staff in the country. We are also lucky to have some of the greatest students in the country. It is you as hornets who make our school what it is! The University of Lynchburg Student Government Association is proud to represent your voices as hornets and we look forward to continuing to serve you!
However, the Student Government Association is not looking for the University of Lynchburg to remain stagnant. Our institution can only remain excellent if everyone works together to make it the best it can be. Currently the Student Government Association is looking for ways to help you be informed, but more importantly, to get feedback from you. We have many new and exciting initiatives taking place this year.

On Sept. 10, 2019, Student Government Association President, Davion Washington, met to discuss his plans for this 2019-2020 school year.
In April 2019, Washington was elected as the SGA President in one of the first contested elections in numerous years. B.J Keefer, Director of Student Engagement and Leadership Development announced in April, “for the first time in many years, of the three elected positions (President, VP of Internal Affairs, VP of External Affairs), two of those were contested. This shows the work of our current SGA members and the involvement of our student body.” Washington added, “As a member of one of the first contested elections, I am glad I was I able to make an impact and become not only a representative for the student body, but a friend and a helping hand for my fellow peers.”
