Student Body Association
The Student Body Association is composed of all students at Mid-America during any given semester. The association meets periodically to implement projects and programs developed through the Student Council.
The Student Council is composed of elected and appointed representatives from the student body with the director of Student Life as advisor. The council is governed by its own constitution and functions as a service organization. It meets as often as is necessary to discuss student problems, needs, and programs, and makes recommendations to the Student Body Association. The Student Council promotes fellowship and recreation among the students and assists students through the Student Relief Fund, as funds are available. Additional information regarding the Student Council is published in the Student Handbook.
Student Relief Fund
Students participate in an ongoing ministry of compassion and care to fellow students through the Student Relief Fund. Students may contribute to this fund, which is administered by the Student Council and assists with emergencies and special needs of students.
Student Representation on Committees
It is the policy and practice of Mid-America to include student representation on committees that are concerned with the planning, implementation, and evaluation of Mid-America’s programs. Student Council representatives serve on the student disciplinary committee and make recommendations to the Student Aid and Scholarship Committee in addition to other committees as appointed by the dean of the College.
The Mid-America Alumni Association
The Mid-America Alumni Association is a national organization with state and regional chapters. The Association informs the alumni about current news, promotes continued alumni involvement in the life of Mid-America, and provides fellowship for the alumni. The national Alumni Association reception is held each year in connection with Founders’ Days. Alumni fellowship meetings are held at the annual state Baptist convention meetings throughout the United States.
