Who We Are

ASHC stands for the Associated Students of Helena College. We are an organization whose purpose is to provide the entire student body with an active voice in their education, promote empowerment and communication amongst the student body, create an inclusive environment conducive to learning for all students, and encourage citizenship both on campus and in the community.

What We Do

One of our biggest tasks is to encourage camaraderie between all students, regardless of degrees’ being sought. We do this by hosting campus wide social activities such as:

  • Trivia Nights Featuring Students vs. Faculty & Staff
  • Week of Welcome BBQ for New and Returning Students
  • Holiday Student Parties
  • Midterm & Finals Week Stress Reduction Events

We also provide funds that can be used to: support student led projects, help form new student clubs, assist with current student club needs, and create scholarship opportunities for both academically deserving students and students who are in financial distress.

Finally, our biggest responsibility is to provide an active voice to all students concerning their higher education. We do this by hosting open forums/discussions between students and members of the Helena College administration (i.e. Interim Dean Kirk Lacey, Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs Sandy Bauman, etc.). We also encourage students to attend meetings with OCHE and other schools across the state.


Why You Should Join!

(Besides the free T-Shirt and Pop-Socket)

All enrolled students are automatically charged a student government fee. By joining, you will be able to have a direct voice about how YOUR student fees are spent. Besides that, you will also be provided with the opportunity to help with the planning of ASHC events, the direction that Helena College moves forward as an institution and meet like-minded individuals while making new friendships that will last beyond the course of your degree.
