Organizational History

A student government was established in 1912. The student newspaper, The Crucible, printed the organization’s Constitution in their February 1912 issue. “Organized Student Body of the State Teachers College of Colorado” was listed as the name of the new student government. The student body was represented by The Student Cabinet. The 1913 Cache La Poudre student yearbook states, “The purpose of the Student Cabinet is to represent the Student Body in council with the President of the college in such matters as concern both school and students.” In 1979, the Associated Students was replaced by the Student Representative Council.
