"Come as You Are, Leave as a Leader"
What is Associated Student Government? (ASG)
The Associated Student Government (ASG) is comprised of goal-driven student leaders who represent the voice of Mission College students! ASG does this by providing programs and services to promote the students’ needs, hold campus-wide events and be a representative of all students at college and district-wide committees. The ASG Senate consists of the President, Vice President, Student Trustee, Director of Finance, Director of Activities, Director of Recruitment, Director of Health and Safety, Director of Marketing, Secretary and Senators.
“Joining ASG is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I came to Mission College with the motivation to improve myself academically and improve the lives of my fellow students. I sought out the student leadership on campus because I thought this would be the best way to help reach both of my goals. Since becoming a member of ASG I have had the pleasure of interacting with a group of people with vast backgrounds and experience. The greatest value of ASG is that although we have these differences, we all have the same goal: Make Mission College the best it can be for the students.” – Andrew Price, 2015-2016 ASG Director of Health and Safety
