It’s time to get pumped!!! We are a little over a month away from the 2021 SEC Exchange (July 29-Aug. 1). We cannot stress how excited we are to see all of you.

This page contains the majority of the information for SEC Exchange and we will continue to update it accordingly. If you run into any issues or have any questions regarding SEC Exchange please reach out to our Chief of Staff, Evan Sudduth,  at


We will be staying at the Graduate Knoxville Hotel. Check-in time is 4:00 pm EST with an early check-in option at 1:00 pm EST for an additional $25. Members from our student government will be present upon arrival to answer any questions. On the evening of check-in, Thurs, July 29, we will be having an ice cream social starting around 7-7:3opm, so keep that in mind when arranging for travel. The block pricing rates per night are as follows: $129/King $149/Queen Parking: $25/day. 17.25% tax Institutions can provide their tax-exempt form. Advisors will be 2 to a room and students will be 2 to a room for king suites and 4 to a room for double queen suites.

The link to reserve your hotel rooms will be sent out when it is available. Do not reserve rooms before the link is sent out, or your school will not be able to receive the block rate.

Throughout the exchange, we will have three time periods for topical breakout sessions focused on sharing ideas to improve our SGAs. All attendees are eligible to present on a topic that relates to the work of their SGA and the student experience. We hope that your delegation will consider leading a presentation; topics might include: programming, successful housing policy change efforts, sustainability campaigns, campus data collection, etc.  Fill out this form and share it with your team. This form will be available until Friday, July 2nd at 5:00 pm EST.
