Associated Student Body of DCC (ASB)
All regularly enrolled full-time students of the College are members of the Associated Student Body of Dawson Community College. A Student Senate, elected as representatives of the freshman and sophomore classes, acts as a governing board for the ASB. The Senate plans recreation and social activities for students and participates with the faculty and the community in planning other college and community events. The Senate also participates in DCC governance via appointments to college committees. A portion of student fees paid each semester is routed to ASB to finance activities.
As the number of students at Dawson grows and as their interests diversify, new clubs and societies are formed on campus. Students or groups wishing to discuss the possibility of organizing a club or society should contact the Dean of Student Services. Such new organizations will be subject to the approval of the student governing body.
