Student Organizations

GU has several organizations on campus for which you can be a part.

Black Student Union

The Black Student Union’s purpose is to enrich, cultivate, and enlighten all students by encouraging diversity and giving a voice to those students who usually might not have one. In doing that we help to promote self-love of the individual, academic success, financial literacy, amongst many other things in alliance with the black student body. In hopes of creating a more diverse and inclusive environment, that will help bring the community here on campus and anywhere else God allows us to.

Greenville Student Government Association (GSGA)

Greenville Student Government Association (GSGA) serves as the liaison between the students and the faculty and administration of Greenville University. We serve the student body by providing many character building and service oriented activities.

The Executive Cabinet, made up of 8 students, governs the Student Association. Of the eight members of Executive Cabinet, two, the Student Association President and Executive Vice President, are elected by the student body. A selection panel made up of student leaders and faculty advisors chooses the other six, Vice President of Campus Activities, Vice President of International Affairs Board, Vice President of Student Outreach, Vice President of Finance, Vice President of Community Relations and Executive Secretary.

Students can also get involved by participating in the Campus Activities Board, or CAB, planning quality entertainment for members of the College Community. Also, Greenville Student Outreach, or GSO, provides a variety of student-run ministry opportunities for the College Community.

Each of the four classes, Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior, has a group of class officers elected by their class to serve them for that year. The President and Vice President of each class serve on the Inter-Class Council, chaired by the Executive Vice President, which seeks to create class unity through Class Competitions and Service Projects.

Also, the President and Senator of each class serve on the Student Senate along with 18 other students elected by the student body. Student Senate, chaired by the Executive Vice President, deals with the concerns of the student body at large. Members of Senate have the opportunity to serve on Faculty Committees, voice the concerns of the students, and learn more about the workings of the college.

Intramurals

Intramurals take place throughout the year with different sport and activity seasons. In the fall, when the weather is nice, wiffle ball, flag football, kickball, dodgeball, and ultimate frisbee occur on Scott Field. Other intramural sports include a six week basketball league, a two week indoor soccer league, and a two and a half week indoor volleyball league. In each league, the top four teams compete in a championship tournament at the end of the season.

 

Mosaic

Mosaic Student Association is a student lead organization that tries to bring a diversity of all backgrounds together with whatever event we do. We know that having different opinions on topics is important and that’s why Mosaic is so important on campus, We try our best to let each student know they have a voice!

Table Tennis

Greenville University Table Tennis Team was founded in 2018 by Mark Islas (President), and Sam Alender (Vice President). This club was created because people recognized that several students on campus loved playing ping pong casually, wanted to get better, and possibly even play some good competition. During the last two years, the club has created an environment where those wanting to improve their skill can play and learn from one another, ultimately earning themselves a spot on the traveling team. The team is part of the NCTTA (National Collegiate Table Tennis Organization) and travels once in the Fall and Spring. Depending on their performance in the two events, they could proceed to the Midwest Tournament, and so on, with the goal being the National Tournament. 

 The traveling team has openings for 8-9 spots, those spots being 4-5 on each the Varsity and JV. At the end of the day however we just want to spread the love of table tennis across campus, encourage more students to play, and simply offer another way for students both new and returning to have community with one another. You do not have to be on the traveling team to be part of the club, all you have to do is want to play with your fellow students! We are open for anybody to join!

 

The Simple Room

The Simple Room is a Youth Development Center for disadvantaged youth in Greenville, Illinois. GU students are hired on our staff through federal work-study and work with the kids after school in their specific field of study. GU students also volunteer in our Tutoring Program, tutoring kids one one one with homework. They also volunteer in Recreation and Activity programs doing hands-on learning and active games.
