Associated Students Incorporated (ASI) is more than just student government. We are a non-profit corporation serving students on many levels.
There are many ways that ASI impacts your life as a student. For example, even if you’re not directly involved with ASI you can still take advantage of the services it provides when you visit the Bronco Student Center (BSC), which is owned and operated by none other than ASI.
These services include Center Court, Games Room Etc., Marketing, Design and PR, Intramural Sports, the Bronco Recreation and Intramural Complex (BRIC), the Children’s Center and much more. Other ASI programs are the Bronco Events and Activities Team, better know as BEAT which put on a variety of events throughout the year. Let’s not forget ASI Student Government where you can become directly involved with students representation on campus.
ASI provides student representation at the campus level and at the California State University system-wide level. It also offers leadership development through student government, student-led programming, student employment and student involvement in a wide array of BSC programs and services. We fully support the enrichment of student life by providing annual funding for student clubs and organizations, diversity programs, athletic scholarships and academic support programs.
