The beginning of student government for Cerritos College was founded by a group of students who took the initiative in improving the new and incoming college. The students dedication for the new campus involved in placing our official school colors, our campus mascot, and the first official student body organization at Cerritos. The formation of the student body organization nearly sixty years ago has led to many successful changes and initiatives which have been beneficial to the many students enrolled at Cerritos College. Some of those successes has led to today from the organization of clubs, department programs, and the leadership of many Cerritos College students. Milestones within the Associated Students of Cerritos College have included from the installation of hydration stations, which provides students with clean & filtered water.
