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.

Help with Commencement 2014!

Interested in helping out with Commencement this year? Want to give back to the seniors that have given so much to Dominican? Sign up now to participate in this year's commencement ceremony as a volunteer! We'll need people to help usher in families of the graduating seniors, direct traffic in the parking lots and on the streets throughout campus, pass out programs and answer questions, and maybe even more!

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.
