Being active on campus helps you build leadership skills, motivates you to get involved and provides you with an opportunity to meet new people.

Associated Students

The Associated Students is designed to provide students with an opportunity to get involved in the college. Through their involvement, students will gain valuable leadership skills which they can later use no matter where they go. 

A.S. Commissioners

Commissioners work in conjunction with their respective Directors.

Each Director may have up to 4 Commissioners to assist them in their duties. 

The Commissioner duties are delegated by each A.S. Director, therefore it will vary depending on the director's projects and responsibilities.
