Administrative History

The Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN) was established in the fall of 1896. As the undergraduate student body organization, it has several areas of responsibilities including student organization recognition. Any student organization which wishes to establish an activities program or use on-campus facilities must petition ASUN, have a faculty or staff advisor, and membership must be consistent with the aims of the university.

Since 1933, the ASUN Senate has represented the students of the University of Nevada through a number of events, legislation and active community engagement. Many ASUN-sponsored events take place in the Joe Crowley Student Union, which opened in 2007 and houses the ASUN offices. The ASUN has published a variety of resources through the years, including student handbooks, the Artemisia yearbook, and the literary magazine Brushfire. The Wolves Frolic was an annual student talent program featuring dancing, music, and skits.

The records are arranged in four series: 1) Administrative Material; 2) Publications; 3) Bookstore; 4) Clubs and Organizations
