The SGA is also tasked with overseeing student activities and clubs in order to provide the appropriate funds for any events that the clubs may hold.

The mission of the SGA is to pursue the betterment of Webster, both socially and academically. The SGA exists to provide the student body with a way to communicate any issues, needs and provide feedback to the administration concerning student life and academics within the University.

The Webster Humanitarian Association (WHA) is a UN registered NGO led by Webster University Geneva students. Being a member of the WHA gives students the opportunity to become involved in issues that they are passionate about, promote human rights and equality and play a small, but important role in shaping a better world.

Students in the WHA participate in planning, organizing and leading events which spread awareness about specific issues that are relevant to our members in the fields of international humanitarian affairs, refugee and migration, human rights and social justice and natural disaster emergency relief. Members are also given the unique opportunity to participate in field trips to see the direct benefits of their efforts and gain real life experience.

Currently we meet every Wednesday for a short meeting during lunch where we discuss current international issues and plan upcoming events. Some of the events we have organized include a refugee simulation, bake sales, trivia nights, basketball tournaments, presentations and conferences. Last year the WHA primarily worked with local refugees from a variety of countries, and traveled to Poland for an educational visit of Auschwitz.

Every once in a while, when we find the opportunity to do so, we participate in a tournament, or organize a game with another club, but the most important tournament we enter is the Webster European Cup. We pick players for the teams in the tournaments based on a combination of how serious they are on Friday training and of course their ability to play football. Most of all, the football club is more like a family than only a team.

Not only does that involve practicing covers and/or composing original songs, but also rehearsing for performances during events at Webster University, such as its annual talent show.
