Student Government

The Associated Students Government Offices are located in suite 311 of the University Student Union. For further information, stop by or call (562) 985-5241.

The quality of student life at CSULB is largely determined by students themselves. The time-honored tradition of student self-governance affords students a remarkable level of autonomy and provides a wealth of opportunities for developing leadership and management skills that can be as valuable as any classroom learning experience. Through self-governance, students learn how to make good decisions, how to motivate others to work toward a common goal, and how to manage budgets and other critical resources.

Student government at The Beach is organized under the Associated Students, a California nonprofit corporation owned and operated by the students of CSULB. Every student becomes a member and “shareholder” of the Associated Students upon registration, and all are encouraged to get involved in Associated Student activities. In addition to student government, the Associated Students also operates and manages the University Student Union, the Isabel Patterson Child Development Center, the ASI Recycling Center, the Soroptimist House, the Beach Pride Center, K-Beach radio, the Long Beach Union newspaper, and the Gold Mine Yearbook, and the Intramural Sports and Wellness Program.
