Freshman Forum is a group of freshmen selected to receive in-depth knowledge of the political body and structure of the University. Members become actively involved with the Student Government Association and learn the necessary tools needed to become well-informed members of the University student body upon entering their sophomore year. Members of the forum also plan events for the benefit of their fellow freshmen as well as for the University. In the past, events such as a campus-wide bar-b-que, a talent show, and a town hall meeting were all implemented. Being a member of Freshman Forum is a great way to get involved and become familiar with the SGA during your first year at Montevallo. The selection process consists of an application followed by a possible interview. The application score will be based on the applicant’s leadership positions, high school GPA., and essay question answers. The first cut will include 15-20 students, depending on the natural break in the application process. The remaining students will be interviewed by a panel of judges.
