SGA Purpose, Mission & Vision


SGA Royal Court

The Royal Court seeks to uphold the vision of Winston-Salem State University as ambassadors for the institution by uplifting and empowering the campus and surrounding communities through service, outreach and programming.

Every year during Homecoming Week there is a night of pageantry when the new Miss and Mister WSSU are crowned. Campus royalty and their royal court serve as ambassadors for SGA and for the university as a whole.
