Student Life

At Salina Tech, we know college is more than just going to class.

Getting involved in your college and your community helps …

That’s why we offer a variety of ways for our students to both have fun and grow. So whether you join Student Government, help build our Christmas float for the downtown parade, or enjoy a cookout and some volleyball, we encourage you to get involved and make new friends.


Student Government

SGA membership is made up of 1-2 students from across each of our full-time programs. Student Government represents students on college-wide strategic planning processes, provides input on student conduct code, and participates in monthly Cabinet Advisory Council meetings. SGA members represent student interests on a variety of other committees and decision making processes.

SGA also provides student activities throughout the year. These activities include:

  • Student Bar-B-Q
  • Breast Cancer Awareness
  • Silent Auction
  • Chili Cookoff
  • Super Bowl Sunday
  • Halloween Costume Contest

Student Ambassadors

Shape the future and direction of SATC’s campus by becoming a student leader. Whether it’s starting your own organization, becoming an officer in an existing organization or serving as a student organization advising peer, you will gain hands-on, real-life experience that can be listed on a job or graduate school application or even your resume. Becoming a leader is also is a great chance to make new friends and interact with students while building confidence and communication skills.

Volunteer to help at an event such as Vehicle Extravaganza, introduce prospective students to our campus, etc.

We also offer students the chance to get involved “behind the scenes” allowing them to gain valuable job experience by helping out with event programming and promotion of the college.
