Vince Lauderdale of Woodward is the current Student Government Association (SGA) president. He chose to attend Northwestern because of the size of the university and the cost of attendance. Because he didn't want to follow in the footsteps of his two older brothers, he initially thought he would not attend Northwestern. However, he says his brothers turned out to be the biggest reasons why he came. The family tradition continues beyond Vince because his sister, Allison, now attends Northwestern as well.
