Welcome to the Bronco Family!
We are excited to welcome you to your campus at Boise State University. It’s an exciting time to be a Bronco, as there are endless opportunities to enrich your experience here. My name is Bryan Vlok, your student body president, and I want to help introduce you to such opportunities.
The Associated Students of Boise State University – known as ASBSU – is the official student government at Boise State. ASBSU has two core purposes: first, to facilitate educational, intellectual, social, and cultural engagement at the University, and second, to advocate for the interests of students at the University. All fee-paying students are members of ASBSU. ASBSU receives a portion of student fees each semester and uses the money to fund student clubs, organizations, and other initiatives on campus.
Last year ASBSU funded everything from Sculptor’s Guild traveling to study architecture in California to Quidditch team uniforms.With over 245 clubs and organizations on campus, there’s a niche somewhere for you. If you still can’t find one, you can start your own student organization! ASBSU wants to help you find and practice your passions.
ASBSU is run entirely by students, for students. The elected officers for this coming school year are the Secretary of Student Organizational Affairs, Hailey Weatherby, Secretary of Academic Affairs, Christopher Bower, Secretary of External Affairs, Angel Hernandez, Student Assembly Speaker, Megan Buxton, and your Vice President, Lauren Albright.
Other positions within ASBSU are appointments to various bodies including the Student Assembly, Executive Council, Student Funding Board, Student Ethics Officer, and various university committees. If you would like to learn more about how to become a part of ASBSU, get in touch with us right away.
You can always find information at asbsu.boisestate.edu, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Like us on Facebook (facebook.com/ASBSU) and follow us on Twitter (@ASBSU). Our office is conveniently located on the second floor of the Student Union Building – directly above the Boise River Café.
My hope is that you find your “home away from home” here at Boise State. If there is anything we can do to help make your experience better please don’t hesitate to come and see us or send us an email. You might spot us handing out drinks on the quad or riding around in the famous Helmet Car! Enjoy the rest of your summer, and come ready to learn outside as well as inside of the classroom this fall. And remember, Go Broncos!
