Eller students have a history of working in the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA), the student government on campus. ASUA offers Eller students the diverse array of involvement opportunities that they desire. ASUA gives these students experience in management, budgeting, teamwork, event planning and many other areas. There are numerous different facets of ASUA for Eller students to work in, including Spring Fling, Bear Down Camp, and the Associated Students of Arizona.
Students interested in the business aspect of Spring Fling, the nation’s largest completely student run carnival, can be a part of the 2012 Spring Fling Business Staff. Members of the business staff are responsible for the accounting and budgeting of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that the event brings in. Also, Spring Fling raises over $40,000 for clubs on campus. If you are interested in being on the business staff or having your club participate in Spring Fling this year, visit their website at springfling.asua.ariona.edu.
Bear Down Camp is accepting applications for camp counselors for next summer. Bear Down Camp is a three day event in which freshman learn about University traditions, spirit and involvement. Those chosen to be counselors will take a training class for one to two academic units next semester. For more information, go to bdcamp.arizona.edu.
The Associated Students of the University of Arizona offers internships and class credit for students interested in lobbying legislature for student issues.
