Should this be called United States student governments since this is the usual term in the United States for them? (For example, the category for Canada is Category:Canadian Students' Associations.) If there's no objection, I'd like to move this to Category:United States student governments; this will still remain a subcategory of Category:Students' unions.

"Student governments" (standard term) "in" (unambiguously indicates location and nothing else) "the United States" (duh). ~~ N (t/c) 23:50, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Came across today and was surprised as I thought consensus was "Student governments in the United States" as well. Perhaps it's time to re-submit. -choster 16:41, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Article Standards[edit]

Please be careful when creating Student Government articles. I AFD'd several of them and most were deleted. They must conform with the notability standards of WP:ORG. Remember to gather reliable sources and don't include original research, like lists of officers. If you are a member of the student government, please see WP:COI to determine how to navigate your conflict of interest. --RedShiftPA (talk) 16:46, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

In many cases, the list of officers wouldn't be original research - many student governments publish the lists online. Also, many campus newspapers will report them after elections. --Tim4christ17 talk 17:12, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Sub categories by state[edit]

 Second opinion requested: I think as there are enough of a diversity in the number of states that the student government represent, that it may be useful to categorise them by state (as I had done with New York). Feedback? Loki190Talk • 21:40, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
