The Counseling Center also offers services in the area of study habits, motivation, vocational

VI.B. CAREER SERVICES
The Career Services Office is administered by the Office of Student Affairs. Sample résumé files
are maintained for any interested student, especially seniors. Prospective employer interviews are
arranged periodically and up-to-date part-time and full-time job books are maintained for
students. A career information library and referral resources are available.
Further services available include assistance in securing internships,
career counseling, résumé
development, job interview training, and career interest and aptitude testing. Résumé referral is
available to all interested students and alumni.
VI.C. ORGANIZATION OF THE STUDENT BODY
The student body of the College is organized in a variety of ways. The most formal and officially
representative organization is the Student Government Association.
The Student Government Association exists under a constitution voted by the student body and
approved by the Faculty and administration and the Board of Trustees. A copy of the
constitution, as currently amended, may be found in the
Student Handbook
.
In annual spring elections, the student body elects officers and a representative legislature which
act for or represent student opinion in all official relations with the Faculty and the
administration. In addition to managing its own affairs concerned with student life, the Student
Government Association elects or appoints student members to serve with appropriate
representatives of the Faculty and administration in the conduct of certain campus-wide
activities.
VI.D. THE PUBLICATION BOARD
The Student Government Association plays an active role in the program of student publications
on campus. The budgets of the several official publications are a part of the total Student
Government Association budget, and the business managers of the separate publications are
responsible directly to the treasurer of the Student Government Association. The College's policy
on student publications is one of guaranteeing freedom from prior censorship and delegation of
responsibility, under sponsorship, and within a code for responsible journalism, to student
editors. This sponsorship rests with a Publications Board composed of the officers of the Student
Government Association, the several editors and the business managers, and both Faculty and
administrative officers.
Four publications are sponsored by the College and edited and managed by students:
The Hilltop
News
,
the student newspaper;
Southern Accent
,
the annual;
Southern Academic Review
,
a journal
of scholarly and academic essays; and
Quad
,
a literary magazine of student writing. All of these
publications fall under the aegis of the Publications Board.
Compass
,
the journal of the
Distinction in Leadership Studies Program, is also published annually.
