The purpose of the Student Activities program and the Associated Students of Cerritos College (ASCC) is to enhance the overall educational experience of students through participation in social, cultural, intellectual, recreational, health, and governance programs. Patterned after the federal and state constitution, student government is made up of the legislative branch (senate), the executive branch (cabinet), and the judicial branch (court). Please visit the link for more information on ASCC and student government. There are also many events hosted by the ASCC such as the Spring Festival and free In-N-Out burger in Falcon Square during Welcome Week. Please visit the calendar of events for more information.
