example, there is SGA representation on the Board of Trustees and University committees, such as Academic Affairs, Liberal Studies, and Budget Advisory Committee. The SGA encourages students to voice their concerns about University policies, facilities and events by getting involved. There are several SGA committees in which students can participate such as GUTS (Gannon University Team Spirit) and LDP (Leadership Development Program.) Students may also give input by attending the Students' Voice section of any SGA General Assembly meeting and visiting the SGA office located in Keim Commons. In addition to being the main voice for the students, the SGA allocates funding of the student activities fee to recognized clubs and organizations and co-sponsors a Merit Scholarship for involved students.

THEATRE PRODUCTIONS For theatre goers, Gannon offers a diverse main-stage season in the Schuster Theatre. Enjoyed by both students and the general public, Theatre productions are open to participation by anyone in or associated with Gannon. Open auditions are held for all productions. Those who show outstanding achievements and ability in the theatre arts may be eligible for election to the Kappa Beta Chapter of the national dramatic honor fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega. Membership is awarded on the basis of merit points accumulated. Each year, the theatre presents a variety of classical and modern plays, including musicals. The theatre is also host to guest troupes from other colleges and universities, and guest artists from the professional world.

Open exclusively to the Gannon community, students can experience a great meal, live music and comedy, play pool, darts, cards, and board games in a relaxed, safe, non-academic setting. The Knight Club is an on-campus hangout where students can establish connections with each other and with the University, and build positive memories that will last a lifetime. GU Gold is accepted!

WALDRON CAMPUS CENTER The Waldron Campus Center, named for Dr. John E. Waldron, provides a wide variety of programs and services that give students an outlet for relaxation, recreation, and co-curricular education.

The Center boasts several lounges, food courts, mailroom, ballroom, meeting rooms and a computer lab which is also a late night study room. The game room has been expanded in cooperation with the SGA, and plasma screens have been added to the main lobby, courtesy of the APB, so that students can check out national news as well as what’s happening on campus for events and student programs. In addition to supporting University events and department functions, the Campus Center also serves as a vital resource for campus programming, including meeting space for Clubs & Organizations, APB events, Late Night Study, MidKnight Madness, and other social activities.
