The Student Council at Gonzaga College Degree and P.G. College is a body of student representatives who work along with the management acting as a bridge between the students and the administrative authorities. For the past years, student council members have been playing significant roles in conducting and organizing events at college level. Student Representatives are selected from the UG and PG courses in the college. The student council consists of around 18-20 members per year. The students are nominated from each department of UG & PG and there is a screening test to assess their knowledge about the college.
The selected students are asked to speak impromptu. This process is followed by a final round of interview. The students who excel in all the rounds and stand out from the others are selected as council members. These students who are diligent & responsible are capable of balancing academics and their duties as student council members, well enough. They live up to the mark in the academic area as well as co-curricular activities. The student council members are headed by the Head Girl from PG level assistant head by UG level.
The student council works round the clock and organizes various events on the occasions like Teachers day, Christmas, Independence Day, Republic Day, etc… They also initiate events or talk on Women’s day, Elections etc… The student council is a body that has representation in the Academic and Administrative Committees.

They are active right from the day they are declared as leaders chosen to lead the college. Such a student council comes a blessing and the members of the council work as a team in parallel with the management to make college a better place for the students and staff.
