Get Involved on Campus

Run for a spot on the ASDU Senate! Become a mentor and leader for freshmen at Orientation! Volunteer to help run programming with ASDU! Join a club or start one! These are all great ways to become involved on campus. We think it's important to not only excel in the classroom but also outside of the classroom doing a variety of extracurricular activities available to all students.

Run in the ASDU Fall 2014 Elections

We are holding ASDU Elections September 16 & 17 for the academic year 2014-2015. Voting will be online; you will be sent an electronic ballot the day of elections. If you are interested in running we are accepting applications until September 5, 2014. Please download the application here: ASDU Candidate Application

Open Positions on ASDU:

  • Freshmen Representative (2): Must have freshmen status for the entire academic year.
  • Athletics Liaison (1): Must have experience with being an athlete at Dominican (does not need to be current student athlete).


Requirements to run for ASDU office: 

 Serving on student government is a rewarding experience - but also one that requires a significant commitment of time and energy. 

  • Must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA.
  • May not be an Ambassador Captain.
  • May not be a Resident Assistant (RA Representative is only exception)
  • Candidates running for any position MUST meet with ASDU Advisor, Lauren Castro, prior to campaigning.


ASDU Membership

All members of ASDU are required to hold regular office hours (will be scheduled at the start of each semester), attend weekly ASDU Regular meetings, attend ASDU-sponsored events and activities, plan and coordinate events according to the job description, and positively represent Dominican University and the student body at University committees and public events.  Members of ASDU may be elected from the undergraduate day population; as ASDU members are stewards of the student activities budget, and since this budget is collected only from undergraduate day students, Pathways and Graduate students are not eligible to run for office. 

Opportunities to Get Involved

  • Join Associated Students of Dominican University, the student government, and help set policies for the year and plan campus-wide activities.
  • Become a volunteer at one of the many campus events held by ASDU, clubs, or the faculty and staff of Dominican
  • Start or join a club! We have several clubs on campus and they all provide guidance, a support network, resources and a sense of belonging. They promote unity and diversity on campus and all students are welcome to join.
  • Play a club sport! Sign up for an intramurals volleyball team or a ping pong tournament. Do some yoga to destress and get some exercise.

Don't have time to be a part of ASDU but still want to help out every now and then? Want to still be involved and know what's happening but can't commit to coming to regular meetings? You can volunteer with ASDU to plan events and spread the word about what's happening on campus. If you want to get involved but don't know how, talk to Lauren about other opportunities available to you.
