What is ASOSU?
ASOSU is every student at Oregon State University. We exist as a student government organization to promote academic excellence, encourage the intellectual, social, cultural, and physical development of the student body, and enable the student body to assert its varied interests as citizens and members of the academic community through democratic representation.
ASOSU Student Government is the official institution of student democracy at Oregon State University. We manage the allocation of incidental fees to student-facing services. We provide a voice to students and advocate on the issues that they care about. We hold stake in the deliberation and enactment of campus-wide policy, bringing the interests of the student body to the table.
ASOSU SafeRide is an inclusive, student-fee funded service dedicated to providing OSU students alternative safer rides around campus and within Corvallis and the surrounding area. ASOSU SafeRide operates on four core values: Safety, Comfort, Integrity, and Student-Focused. These core values drive everything that we do, and decision we make.
The Office of Advocacy is student fee-funded and has been supporting students with university related matters for over 20 years. Our professional staff are here to support you along side a group of Peer Advocates who are trained to help you from a student perspective. When you work with the Office of Advocacy, we will listen, develop options, and support you on your chosen path.
Student Legal Services is one of the services offered by the ASOSU for the OSU students of the Corvallis campus. Legal Services are provided to OSU students through Access the Law, and paid for through the Corvallis campus student incidental fees. Our office provides legal advice and representation to OSU students when they have a dispute that does not pertain to the University.
The ASOSU Student Advisory Board stands alongside the other student fee-funded units to provide recommendations for our unit budget — covering OSU's recognized Student Government association, SafeRide program, Student Legal Services contract, and the Office of Advocacy — to the Student Fee Committee. Meetings are open to the public and participation from OSU students is strongly encouraged, especially during fall term.

Let it be acknowledged that Oregon State University in Corvallis is located within the traditional homelands of the Marys River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians. Indigenous people are valued, contributing members of the Oregon State community and represent multiple sovereign tribes among students, faculty, staff and alumni.
