    How Many are Accepted:

    StuGo is a class that meets 3R (Juniors and Seniors) or 3G (Freshmen and Sophomores).  Becuase it is a graded class, there are a limited number of seats avaliable in the room. According to the StuGo Constitution, there will be a maximum of 20 students from each grade level.  The sponsor has an option of adding members to the class, regardless of the grade.  We typically have over 100 applicants each year.
