GROSSMONT COLLEGE- The Associated Students of Grossmont College, which coordinates many events on campus, is chaired by ASGC President Cheryl-Anne Phillips and is run by a board of directors who want more colleagues.

“We want all of the students to know that we are here for them,” said ASGC board member Tina Howell. “If there is any suggestion that any student has, we want to know about it. It’s very important to us that we represent our students.”

“We have over 20,000 students, and at the moment we only have 13 board members,” Howell continued. “We would love to have a board member for every 1,000 students.”

ASGC meetings are open to all students and applications for board membership are available in both the Student Affairs office and the ASGC office.

“If you have above a 2.4 GPA, time available between 8 a.m to 9::30 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, four hours available to give to office hours, six credit hours and your student benefit card, then you can apply to be on the board,” said Howell.

“We also want to promote our student benefit card,” said Howell. “We’re working really hard to get different benefits within the community and not just at Grossmont and Cuyamaca.”

Items obtainable with the student benefit card include unlimited popcorn, a prize drawing ticket, and savings at Ross Books and the Grossmont Bookstore, according to Howell.
