ASO Board

Make a difference in student government!

We are LASC’s Associated Student Organization (ASO) Commissioners, a group of students who actively represent LASC’s diverse student body in voicing student concerns, requests, and needs during campus committee meetings and through our interactions with student-led organizations and groups.

ASO sponsors several social events and activities each year and supports our student ASO members. ASO Commissioners strive to keep students informed of their rights while creating an engaging and encouraging atmosphere for students to pursue their academic goals.

You can apply to be an ASO Commissioner! Those who are appointed as ASO Commissioners will gain experience in leadership roles, public speaking, budgeting, policy-making, and event planning. It’s a noteworthy position you can put on your resume, too.

Los Angeles Southwest College students voted to have each student pay one dollar ($2.00) per semester to raise funds towards ASO operations (Education Code section 76060.5). These funds are used for advocacy locally, and state-wide.

ASO membership is seven dollars ($7.00) per semester and three dollars ($3.00) for summer and winter sessions.

Membership in ASO has its benefits! As a member, you will:

  • Receive discounts to ASO-sponsored activities, such as mini-concerts, food, access to some facilities if the whole student body benefits.
  • Be considered for any ASO-funded awards and scholarships, as stipulated in the ASO Bylaws
  • Have voting rights in any ASO election, initiative, or referendum
  • If eligible, be able to hold any ASO elected office, be appointed to an office, and serve on any committee
  • Receive any additional benefits throughout the year that are set by the Student Council

ASO offers scholarships to its student ASO members! Each year we offer multiple scholarships for students who show a remarkable drive to pursue their own excellence in academics, integrity, and leadership.

Make a difference at LASC! ASO Commissioners develop important professional and life skills in leadership, finances, and decision-making. They help others, promote collaboration, and effect changes that benefit their fellow students. They gain resume-worthy experiences while taking on a leadership role representing their college community.

We have Commissioner positions that represent the different interests of our campus, such as Commissioner of Athletics, Cultural Affairs, Student Awareness, Disabled Student Services, Clubs and Organizations, and many others. Explore all of the positions you can apply for to see which one interests you the most. Then review the requirements, complete the application, and submit it to the ASO Office for review.

Challenge yourself, expand your boundaries, and be a part of making LASC the best it can be!

View our Organization’s Constitution and Bylaws here:

President George W. Bush signed a bill on December 8th, 2004 (public law 108-447), which designates every September 17th as Constitution Day.

The U.S. Constitution was signed by thirty-nine brave men who changed the course of history and Constitution Day is now a time for us to continue their legacy and develop habits of citizenship in a new generation of Americans.

The preamble to the United States Constitution

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." 

Some Fun Facts about the Constitution...

  • Of the spelling errors in the Constitution, “Pensylvania” above the signers’ names is probably the most glaring
  • Thomas Jefferson did not sign the Constitution. He was in France during the Convention, where he served as the U.S. minister. John Adams was serving as the U.S. minister to Great Britain during the Constitutional Convention and did not attend either.
  • The oldest person to sign the Constitution was Benjamin Franklin (81). The youngest was Jonathan Dayton of New Jersey (26). Because of his poor health, Benjamin Franklin needed help to sign the Constitution. As he did so, tears streamed down his face.
