The Associated Students (AS), established in 1944, is the official student body government. It functions as a non-profit, student-run corporation, and is funded by the student activity fee all students pay each semester. That fee also makes each student an Associated Students member, eligible to vote in the annual elections for AS leadership. For more information about getting involved in Student Government, please contact the AS business office at 415-338-3399.
