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 click 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
