The San José State University Student Council, also known as the Associated Students (A.S.), formed in 1897 as a student club. The Student Council and the Student Court served as the executive and judicial body of student government on campus. In 1923, the Student Council reorganized and was renamed the Associated Students. The Associated Students incorporated in 1980, and is divided into two branches: Executive and Legislative. The Associated Students Records, 1948-2006, document the activities of the university's student government organization. The records consist of meeting minutes, correspondence, budget materials, election and campaign records and newspaper clippings. This collection is arranged into five series: Series I.
