SJS Past Presidents

Being a President in student government is no easy task. Through resignations, impeachment trials, drafts for wars, and remodeling of the student government, these presidents stuck through it all. Through the difficult moments, they also made strides in DEIJ work, healthcare at SJU, helped create the link bussing between CSB+SJU, and created a functioning government for the student body to voice their concerns.  The President of the student government has been the face of this organization, whether it is our current Saint John’s Senate, or the Student Forum back in 1938, they are always in the lead. Therefore, to show our appreciation for these leaders, the SJS decided to do some research, and develop a complete list of the presidents through the years.

We start off with the Saint John’s Senate Presidents (1981 – present), move on to the Student Executive Council Presidents (1973 – 1981), go back even further to the Undergraduate Student Government Presidents (1969 – 1972), eventually get to the Student Council Student Body Presidents (1943 – 1969), stop in on the Student Board Presidents (1939 – 1943), and finally end with the Student Forum Presidents (1938 – 1939). Take a look back through these great leaders, who have helped define CSB+SJU as we see it today!
