Albany State University students are ranked top in the nation for their student government affairs.
The Student Government Association was given the honor of the 'Best Student Advocacy Group' out of all the historically black colleges and universities in the United States.
SGA groups were judged based on their impact on not only the campus but the community.
Albany State students helped register voters during the 2012 election and they were also instrumental in recognizing the class of 61' for their participation in the Civil Rights movement.
This ultimately led to class members receiving their honorary degrees.
"Our SGA representatives are elected by their peers. They have grade point averages well over 3.0 and they are very committed not only to Albany State but the community, the state, and the world at large," said Dr. Rhonda Bryant, Interim Vice President of Student Affairs.
Albany's State's SGA was recognized also for creating a discount card for students, faculty and staff.
