Who We Are

The Associated Students of Helena College (ASHC) is the official governing body for Helena College students. The purpose of ASHC is to advocate for the general welfare of Helena College students, serve as a forum for student participation in clubs and organizations, conduct business on behalf of the study body, and represent the student opinion at the college’s internal and external affairs. We are your official student government!

What We Do

ASHC promotes campus engagement through events, campus activities, student clubs, and civic engagement. Funds collected by the Helena College Student Government fee are controlled by ASHC Student Senate. Together we decide how funds are allocated to accomplish the ASHC mission to enhance the student experience. Funds are often used for:

  • Student events and activities
  • Funding new student clubs
  • Student Scholarships
  • Equipment in common areas i.e. water bottle refill stations
  • Special projects requested by students

ASHC Executives and Senators maintain regular committees and meetings to accomplish the business of Helena College students. Senate committees include budget committee, student life committee, elections committee, and many more!

Through our connection with the Montana Associated Students (MAS), ASHC representatives stay up-to-date with state legislation that impacts Helena College students.
