The Student Government Association at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is the shared governance representative of the student body. Wisconsin State Statute 36.09(5), corresponding case law, and UW System policy, grants students the right and responsibility to actively participate in the governance of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. UW-Stevens Point has a long, rich, and innovative history of student governance that began in the 1960s.


The Student Government Association is made of three branches of government: the Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch. The president and vice president of the Student Government Association oversees the Executive Branch, the speaker of the senate oversees the Legislative Branch and the head justice oversees the Judicial Branch.

Hey Pointers,

My name is Ben Koenig, and I have been given an amazing opportunity to serve as the President for the coming year. I am bursting with excitement for you to join me on campus at UW-Stevens Point this year. I am originally from Waukesha, Wisconsin, about two and a half hours south east of Stevens Point, and I am a junior studying political science and philosophy. Whether this is your first time here, or if you are here on your final semester, welcome home.

This year will be a new vision for our campus. Take advantage of this year and make it your own! Put yourself out there and join a new student organization using SPIN, take a walk through Schmeeckle Reserve, get competitive by joining an Intramurals team, or laugh at a comedy show. Pay attention to all the posters that cover campus and commit to attending just one thing at a time. There is a ton to do. Together, let’s make this year one to remember.

And as always, SGA is here to help you. Please reach out to us—we exist to serve you. And if there is anything I can do for you, whether it be solving a problem on campus, pointing you in the right direction, or just lending a listening ear, please reach out to me at or call me at 715-346-3722.

Today is a great day to be a Pointer,

Benjamin Koenig
