Student Organizations at Chaminade University are designed to be representatives of student interests on campus. Student organizations differ from clubs in that they have a more specified purpose. For example, while a club may utilize its funds for programming, Chaminade Student Allocations Board (CSAB) may not.

The Chaminade Student Government Association (CSGA) has a charter from the university as the official student governing organization of the student body.

Student government fees are divided among the following organizations: CSGA, Allocation Board, and Programming Board. If you are interested in getting involved, contact us at 739-8378 or stop by the CSGA office located next to the Vi and Paul Loo Center.
