Associated Students of History

Visit ASH on Facebook!

The Associated Students of History (ASH), winner of the  College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Student Organization Award, is an organization designed to promote history both as a field of study and as a hobby. Among its many members, ASH includes history majors and minors, education students with concentrations in history, and others interested in the study of the past. Members meet on a regular basis during the academic year to discuss historical and professional topics and to participate in the variety of history-related programs, lectures, and movies regularly sponsored by ASH. In addition, each semester ASH sponsors a free day trip to a regional site of historical interest. For the latest news about ASH's activities, see "ASH in the News" below.
