The ASCC Mission
The ASCC, as a responsive, student-centered organization, provides excellence, in leadership and professional development for the diverse community of Cerritos College by conveying high quality services, programs, products, and facilities.
ASCC fosters student success through leadership development, academic excellence and student life.
The Associate Students of Cerritos College (ASCC) was established in 1956 at Excelsior High School which was then the temporary location of Cerritos College.
The beginning of student government for Cerritos College was founded by a group of students who took the initiative in improving the new college. The student leaders established official school colors, the campus mascot, and the first official student body organization (ASCC).
The formation of the student body organization has become beneficial to the many students enrolled at Cerritos College. Some of those successes have led to the organization of clubs, department programs, and the leadership of many committed Cerritos College students.
