The Student Government Association at Camden County College provides a voice for students.

Members of student government communicate with administration and faculty to improve the college. Along with that, student government also works with extra-curricular activities to boost school spirit.

Student government supplies multiple services to the school. It allocates funds to clubs and organizations at the college. There are about 15 clubs at the college that student government works with. Members suggest rules and regulations concerning the students, and student government also encourages students to participate in college activities.

There are qualifications that have to be met to become a member. A student must complete at least 12 credits at the college, with a GPA 2.5 or higher.

While serving, a member must take at least six credits and have a GPA of 2.5 or higher while in office.

Candidates up for selection can’t have any student code of conduct infractions.

Student government has various positions for students at the college. Some of them are president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, and Camden campus executive officers.

The president is John M. Huhn, III. The vice president is Amanda Braddock, the treasurer is Brittney Henry, the secretary is Blake A. Clemmer, and the Camden campus executive officers are Ray T. Simon, III and Rasheed Young.

Huhn is majoring in secondary education and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa. He hopes to transfer to Rutgers University and one day become a professor and a psychologist.

Huhn believes that students should get involved with student government because this is their school.

“As students we represent this college everyday and we pay tuition to this college; therefore, it is crucial that we have ownership of our college,” Huhn said.

As president, Huhn represents every student at Camden County College, which numbers close to 16,000 students. He meets monthly with representatives from every club to see what is going on and where student government can be of service. He meets with college administration and various deans to address concerns and issues facing the students.

Student Government helps students communicate among each other and with employees, so they can work together to make the best decisions for the college.
