Student Government Association

SGA Services

These are Student Government initiatives, run by students, for the students.

Safe Ride

Safe Ride is a SGA initiative/Student run organization that provides safe transportation for students who need a ride.

Safe Ride runs Thursday through Saturday between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. and is free, but only for Washington College students. All drivers are certified by Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPS). TIPS is a skills-based training program that is designed to prevent intoxication, underage drinking and drunk driving. In addition to TIPS certification, all drivers will be CPR certified.

The drivers will ask the passenger for his or her name, (this is only for insurance purposes.) 

The Safe Ride program is always open to students’ concerns and questions and you can contact them at saferide@washcoll.edu and during operation hours at 410-810-7433.

Bike Share Program

Students will pay a $10 fee to have access to the bikes, which will go toward maintenance and cost of the bikes.  Helmets will be provided if the rider chooses.  To prevent theft, bikes will be customized in WC spirit, with black and maroon paint, the ‘Goose Nation’ logo, and an ID tag.

To rent a bike, riders will simply use a check out sheet and present their student ID number, and will be able to use the bike up until the scheduled return time at 11 a.m. the following day.  Riders will have the opportunity to ‘renew’ the bike if they choose, for the next day as well. A strike system will be in place for riders who fail to return bikes on time; those who have more than three strikes will have their bike privileges suspended for a period of time.
